Spicy Chicken Bibimbap

When I think of comfort food other than the traditional southern classics, bibimbap always comes to mind. If you’re not familiar bibimbap its a rice dish full of goodies meant to be mixed around. I think the fact its so customizable makes it such a great warm comforting dish. You can put your favorite protein or veggies. The only must in my opinion is the nested egg on top.

I’m what you would call a egg hater. When I was a kid I couldn’t stand the sight, smell or look of eggs. I’ve deduced it down to a textural thing. When I was in culinary school I learned the value of a egg yolk! A egg yolk adds such deepness, richness and flavor to so much that would be otherwise pretty plain. Egg whites, I cant say too much bad about them because I bake with them and what not. but alone absolutely not. im one of those that break the yolk and toss the rest to the side. Eggs happen to be a weakness for me. In this dish it is a absolute necessity.

The great thing about rice dishes is during the week you can throw your leftovers in, boil some rice, add a pinch of this and that and enjoy! Try this recipe out and let me know what you think!

    I totally get it! I can only handle it on a fried egg maybe it’s because when you pop it, it’s not too intertwined with the white. A poached egg on the other hand will never happen for me.
