Pre-seasoned supermarket chicken sold with pseudo-Asian font




Season's Greetings! Here's another utterly mundane PINK MANHATTAN post, one of many as of late. Hey, we all have to eat, and what's better than "cooking" pre-seasoned or, heck, frozen, foods that taste better than expected? Bless the people who have made this possible (not that I've ever been an avid cook)! Speaking of pre-seasoned food, I've been addicted to this chicken from the supermarket that tastes really good; it's marinated in some kind of spicy red sauce. I noticed yesterday that this package of ready-to-cook pre-seasoned chicken had a label on it saying it's chicken, in some kind of pseudo-Asian font. That got me thinking...could this be kimchi sauce? Has Korean flavor arrived in mainstream America dressed up as nondescript oriental fare? It's going to be an interesting experiment when I go buy a jar of kimchi sauce to compare (Edited to add: Or could it be gochujang sauce?) (Image: fora.mtv.ca)
