A glaze of spicy gochujang (or Korean red chile paste), black bean sauce, and sushi sauce flavors the chicken in these tacos—complete with crisp cabbage and a layer of cooling crème fraîche. On the side, roasted sweet potatoes get a lift from a garnish of Japanese furikake.

Prepare & roast the sweet potato:
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potato:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick pieces. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Prepare & season the cabbage:
2 Prepare & season the cabbage:

While the sweet potatoes roast, cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Place in a large bowl. Add half the vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3 Make the sauce:

While the sweet potatoes continue to roast, in a bowl, combine the sushi sauce, black bean sauce, remaining vinegar, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the gochujang as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.
