[Korean Recipes] Dakdoritang - Spicy Korean Chicken Stew

I like to share this delicious spicy Korean chicken stew with you. It it spicy as the title mentioned, but so good that it is worth of sweating a little to enjoy this delicious stew. The Korean name for this stew can be either dakdoritang (닭도리탕) or dakbokkeumtang(닭볶음탕). Both names share the same delicious spicy chicken stew and you should definitely try this if you love anything spicy!

The authentic recipe calls for one whole chicken cut up. I am using a mixture of chicken thighs, drumsticks, and breast. All bone-in but skinless pieces.

Wash the chicken parts in the running water and set aside.

To make the sea kelp stock, you simmer a large piece (about the size of your hand) of dried sea kelp in water for 5-7 minutes over low heat.

Instructions

1. In a large mixing bowl, mix all the seasoning paste in. Add the chicken and toss to coat with the seasoning. Place the chicken in a braising pan or a deep skillet.

2. Pour the sea kelp stock over the chicken to barely cover them,about 2-3 cup. Bring to med-hot heat and let them boil first, then cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.

3. Add the onion and carrots to the chicken, toss together. Simmer for another 10 minutes.

4. Add the potatoes to the chicken and vegetable mixture and simmer together for 10-15 minutes. Cooking time will vary depends on the size of your vegetables.

5. If you see there are too much liquid in the pan, you will want to thicken the sauce. To thicken, when the vegetables are nearly tender, raise the heat to medium and continue to cook uncovered until the liquid in the pan evaporates. Tossing occasionally but very carefully without breaking the carrot and potatoes.

6. Add the green chilies and green onion at last to toss. Serve hot with rice.

Notes

* To make the sea kelp stock, put a piece (about the size of your hand) of dried sea kelp (aka konbu) in a small pot with 4 cups of water. Bring to boil first, then simmer for 5 minutes over low heat. Discard the sea kelp and you will get golden sea kelp stock ready to use.
