Instructions: How to Cook Korean Chicken Sandwich

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the chicken by pounding the breasts to an even thickness. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Set up a breading station with three shallow bowls: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with panko breadcrumbs.
  4. Dredge each chicken breast in flour, then dip in the beaten eggs, and coat with panko breadcrumbs.
  5. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl, mix gochujang, soy sauce, honey, and rice vinegar to make the sauce. Brush the sauce over the chicken breasts.
  7. In a separate bowl, combine shredded cabbage and chopped kimchi to make the slaw.
  8. Assemble the sandwiches by placing a chicken breast on the bottom half of each toasted brioche bun. Top with kimchi slaw, sesame seeds, and chopped green onions.
  9. Serve the Korean Chicken Sandwiches hot and enjoy the delicious flavors!
