Barbecue chicken is a summertime staple. It’s one of the most popular items you’ll find at a cookout or picnic next to hamburgers and hot dogs. What’s not to love about juicy chicken coated in a sweet and tangy glaze? As much as I love a good homemade, all-American barbecue sauce, I want to elevate my barbecue chicken by adding wonderful, spicy, salty, sweet Korean flavors to it.

With summer in full swing, many people do their cooking outside. The thought of turning on an oven can cause a person to break out in a sweat. However, there are plenty of folks who don’t have a grill or are intimidated by the thought of cooking over an open flame. Then there are the times when you go turn on the grill only to find out there’s no gas. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me. For all those inopportune times and for those who don’t have the option to grill, there’s the wonderful Wolf Gourmet countertop oven.

I’ll be honest, I use the Wolf Gourmet countertop oven more than I use my regular oven. It cooks and bakes food faster and it gives off minimal heat, which means less heating up the house. The feature I love most – especially when cooking the Korean barbecue chicken – is the integrated temperature probe. It’s simple to use, and I know exactly when the chicken reaches the internal temperature without even opening the oven. The result is juicy, flavorful and precisely-cooked chicken without any guesswork.

This chicken is good enough to eat on its own, but serving on top of crunchy Asian coleslaw takes it to a whole new level. So much flavor and texture in every bite, you won’t be able to resist it!

  • In a small bowl whisk together the tamari, water, lime juice, maple syrup, rice vinegar, sambal oelek or gochujang, sesame oil, garlic and ginger.
  • In a separate small bowl whisk together the arrowroot powder and water until dissolved.
  • Set the countertop oven to roast and insert the probe. Set the oven temperature to 325 degrees F. and the probe temperature to 155 degrees.
  • Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels then season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat an oven safe skillet lightly coated with olive oil over high heat.
  • When the skillet is hot, add in the chicken and cook until lightly golden, about 1-2 minutes. Flip the chicken over and cook until lightly golden on the second side, about 1-2 minutes longer. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  • Discard any excess oil in the skillet and lower the heat to medium. Pour the sauce into the skillet and once it starts to simmer add in the arrowroot slurry and whisk until the sauce is thick and coats the back of a spoon or spatula, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet and turn several times to coat them thickly in the sauce. Spoon extra sauce over the top before putting the skillet in the oven.
  • Place the skillet in the oven and insert the probe into the thickest part of the chicken breast. Roast the chicken breasts until the probe registers 155 degrees F.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven and set the oven to broil. Spoon more sauce over the top of the chicken and when the oven is ready place the skillet back in. Broil for another 3-5 minutes or until the chicken reaches 160 to 165 degrees F.
  • Transfer the chicken to a serving plate and let it rest 5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve the chicken on top of or alongside the Asian coleslaw and topped with more of the Korean barbecue sauce.
