How to make Blackstone Korean Chicken Tacos

First we will make the marinade for the chicken, which also will be used to create the sauce for the kimchi slaw.

Put 3 tablespoons each gochujang and soy sauce, some minced garlic, and a tablespoon each honey and lime juice in a bowl and whisk until combined.

Mix a few spoonfuls of this with 1/2 cup of mayo, cover and refrigerate until ready to use to make the slaw.

Then cut 1 1/2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs into bite size pieces.

Put the chicken in a gallon size plastic bag and add the remaining gochujang mixture, toss until combined and marinate in the fridge.

Toss 2 cups of coleslaw mix or shredded salad mix together with some of the spicy mayo mixture and kimchi right before you begin cooking the chicken.

Be sure to save some of the sauce to add some extra sauciness to the tacos when serving.

Then get your ingredients ready to head out to the griddle.

I like to put it all on a tray and then use the same tray to carry the cooked food back inside.

Preheat the Blackstone griddle or flat top grill to medium for a few minutes.

Add some cooking oil and the seasoned chicken.

Cook this for 8 to 10 minutes, flipping with hibachi spatulas a few times.
