Prep: 10 min

Cooking: 30 min

Serves 4 people


Chicken & Vegetables:

  • 1 Kg chicken (2.2 lbs), cut into medium-sized chunks

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 potatoes (450g/ 1lb), cut into medium pieces (optional)

  • 1 carrot (150g/ 5.3oz), cut into medium pieces

  • 3 perilla leaves, thinly sliced

  • 1 stalk green onion (20g/ 0.7oz), thinly sliced

  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

Sauce (mix into a bowl):

  • 3 tbsp gochujang (Korean chili paste)

  • 2 tbsp gochugaru (Korean chili flakes) or regular chili flakes

  • 2 tbsp rice wine

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

  1. On a medium pan, add chicken and sauce to mix together with 5-6 cups of water (enough to cover the chicken).

  2. Boil them over medium-high heat for about 20 min, covered.

  3. Add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and boil for a further 10 minutes, covered. Reduce the heat to medium and stir gently to change the position of the chicken and vegetables.

  4. Garnish with the green onion and sesame seeds. Serve hot with a bowl of steamed rice. Enjoy!
