  • Salt and pepper


Serves: 4

For the salad topper, combine the cucumbers, radishes and scallions in a bowl, whisk up dressing and toss with salad. Add sesame seeds just before serving. 

For the tray bake, preheat oven to 425°F. 

Whisk up gochujang, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, light brown sugar, oil, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl. 

Place chicken, zucchini and onions into a mixing bowl, season with a little salt and generous black pepper and toss to combine.

Top tray with salad and sesame seeds to serve.
