Braised chicken with vegetables (Dakjjim:안동찜닭)

Hello everybody! Today’s recipe is chicken. Chicken dish is called Dakjjim. Dakjjim is braised chicken with a soy sauce based broth. I’m using chicken thigh. So three pounds. This amount is going to be for four servings. Okay, let’s start. 🙂 A little frozen, so I thaw it out. So it looks like this. Cut this into bite size. So one inch and two and a half inches long. Throw away excess fat. Rinse this. Soak this chicken for a few minutes. And I’m going to wash my cutting board and knife. This is starch noodles. When I make japchae, I use these noodles. It’s called glass noodles, or starch noodles. Potato starch noodles, and we are going to use this, around 100 grams. And I’m going to soak this in cold water too. This amount is around 100 grams for four servings. Okay, let’s soak this. Drain the chicken. Next, I’m going to make sauce for this. Soy sauce, quarter cup. Oyster sauce, quarter cup. Rice syrup or corn syrup, quarter cup. Dark brown sugar. I will use just one tablespoon for color and more sweetness. One tablespoon dark brown sugar. Mix this well. Like this. Looks a little sticky, right, because we used the rice syrup. Set aside. This noodle top part is exposed to the air, so you have to turn over like this. And then, getting soft. Let’s start cooking! Start with high heat. Add some vegetable oil. This is dried chilies. Dried chilies. Like this. It’s going to burn so quickly. Before it burns, take them off. I can smell the flavor of the chilies. We are going to cook this for a while. Garlic, around one third of a cup. And this guy is ginger, around one teaspoon. Okay! Then mince this. Garlic and ginger square, we made this. Let’s turn it over, chicken. Nicely cooked. It’s some potato. Cut into one inch thick. Around seven minutes I cooked over high heat. Garlic and ginger. Next, potato. And then add three cups of water. And sauce we made. Okay, this noodles are soft now, So I will take them out. Close the lid. Green part, and cut this around two and a half inches long. Thinly slice. Let’s put this in cold water. And it’s going to be really later a good garnish and also really goes with this taste. Onion slice. Carrot also slice. Cut it like this, diagonally. Red chili, only one. I will use this. And green chili pepper, I will use two. Cucumber, cucumber adds a really nice special flavor. Around ten minutes I boil this Let’s add some onion. Carrot. Ten minutes high heat we cook this without lid. Let’s start with the noodles. Poke this with your metal chopstick or fork. Easily go through. And very tender, so well cooked. And let’s put this, the colorful vegetables. Fried dried red pepper. Ohh, spicy smell. Ground black pepper. Noodles are translucent and look chewy, and also the sauce is really nice broth we had. And, all done. So you can serve like this or transfer this to a serving plate. Last touch. What do you think I need? Sesame oil! Sesame oil on top. Turn off the heat. You remember this? And sesame seeds. That’s it! Chicken and potato. Easily fall off the bone. It’s really tender. Mmm! Mmm. So, taste the noodles. Leftover juice you can mix with rice like this. So we made Dakjjim. It’s braised chicken with vegetables. Enjoy my recipe. See you next time. Bye!

  6. Thank you, Maangchi! I have cooked it for my family. I replaced the rice syrup with maple syrup and it still tastes great and very authentic. To make the chicken even more delicious, next time I will marinate it first. I love all your recipes. Thank you so much for sharing.

  7. I just made this, just this morning and it's really delicious. The meat is super tender and it taste sweet as the same time spicy(for me). I don't have any rice syrup or corn syrup just replace it with sugar and water boiled. It taste great 🙂 Thank you for sharing this recipe

  8. hello Maangchi..i truly enjoy your receipes. i have a question…..can i substitute the oyster sauce for something else? and if so what..thanks for your time and attention

  9. This is by far my most favourite recipe of yours. It's easy to make, yet amazingly tasty. I didn't add ginger and cucumber, and I replaced dried chilli with crushed chilli flakes because I couldn't find dried chilli near where I live. However, it is still amazing. I added tofu and put a poached egg on top. I also seasoned the chicken with a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor. Everytime I try your recipes, they all work!

  10. Manngchi! I made this for dinner. It was great, but it's too salty for me. Maybe less oyster sauce or more water will be better for someone. 😄
    But your recipes and the ways of cooking are always so helpful and precious.🏅 Thank you so much.

  15. This took me forever to find because I always knew it as jjimdak! When I lived in Daegu there was a restaurant that made this with cheese. I can't wait to make this now and satisfy my jjimdak craving!! Thank you, Maangchi! ^^

  16. I was looking for an asia inspired braised chicken and found my luck again with you maangchi! You are my favorite youtube cook when it comes to korean dishes and I learned to cook korean dishes easily. Greetings from germany 🙂

  17. Hello ms.maangchi i saw your video about potato pancake and il try it….my kiddos love it…..thank u….GOD bless….

  18. Hi Maangchi. I am a new subscriber from India and a new fan of Korean food in general. I wondered what can I use instead of rice syrup or corn syrup. Does honey do the job?

  19. Here in the USA, boneless chicken thighs are very popular. I recently made a stew and I chopped up some ginger and put it in with it. I marinated some chicken in a plastic cooking bag 2 gal size with garlic, sesame and soy sauce in the fridge and then chopped some carrots, onions, green onions stems and white part separately and some ginger. I put some oil in the pan large sauce pan, and put in the white part of the green onion cut into circles, and ginger fried that a little then put in the chicken and cooked the chicken thighs a while on both sides then dumped in some cut carrots, halved button mushrooms, yellow onion, chopped potato and about 3 cups of water to cook the chicken stew till the chicken was getting soft. Then I put in the green onion stems cut to about 2 inch pieces. Then I put the heat on high boil to boil off excess liquid.

    One mistake I made is I used a little too much water, and I did not cut up the chicken into smaller pieces. However, when it was done, the chicken thighs were just falling apart. The ginger makes a very different taste. Of course we have similar stews in the past and have used things like US sweet potato, Korean white radish, and jujube and used the korean dried and soaked mushrooms instead. The korean Moo radish or white radish makes a good substitute for potato.
