Dak-kkochi – Korean Chicken Skewers

Dak-kkochi (닭꼬치, chicken skewer) is a type of Korean chicken kebab, usually served on a stick. The meat is first cooked and cut into narrow slices. Then, it is basted with a spicy BBQ-flavoured sauce. Mayonnaise and mustard may also be placed on the Dak-kkochi. This is frequently seen as street food.

Early Dak-kkochi

In the early 1990s, Korean chefs would use a chicken’s heart and paste it with spice; however, Koreans now use chicken breast or legs.
