This recipe is probably my most requested recipe, ever - and rightly so! It is a dish that I make every single week because it is just too good and so easy. Plus, one recipe creates enough meals for 2-3 days, which, for leftover-lovers like me, is the dream. It seriously tastes like a real lasagna, but without all the carbs, gluten, and general feeling of heaviness after consuming.
Since going back to a desk job a few weeks ago, meal prep has become a key element to my weekday sanity. Long gone are the days of leisurely opening the fridge midday to cook up whatever ingredients I had on hand. Now it's all about packing up my lunch container full of healthy dishes and digging into my meal at my desk.
This recipe is a healthy-fied homage to a childhood favorite. Growing up in Korea, there was a chain of fried chicken restaurants, Pelicana Fried Chicken, that made the most glorious spicy fried chicken. It was crispy fried popcorn chicken covered in a bright red spicy sauce.
This post is coming to you a bit later than planned on this Friday morning because I have been sitting at my desk completely paralyzed from being cold. Whenever I make a smoothie in the morning, it gets me so cold that I am unable to move (and obviously too lazy to grab sweatshirt).
