This Recipe was great! I had daikon radish left from my winter CSA box and didn't want to make a cold 'slaw' type recipe with it. The whole family (inc 2 and 5-year old girls) LOVE this recipe. I modified it some. I didn't have sake, so I used some rice vinegar. I don't know what mirin is, so I just skipped it. This is now added to my regular rotation. We doubled+ the sauce the second and third time to have lots of sauce over rice.

This was quite good. I did not add the chili flakes. I did not have sake so I used rice vinegar plus a little cooking sherry. I also cut my daikon radish into smaller pieces. I've been munching on it ever since. I did not add chicken but I will next time.

After buying Daikon Radishes at the Sonoma Farmer's Market today, I found this recipe. Had all the ingredients, so the first time I make a recipe I follow it exactly. this time, in the process of making it and tasting as I went, I realized it would need more flavor for our taste. Added yellow onion cubes, chopped tomato, grated ginger and straw mushrooms and it still turned out too bland. IF I make it again, I'd add a green pepper, more garlic, soy and would use sesame chili oil fairly liberally to punch it up.

This was a hit with the men in my house! I was not honest with my husband and did not tell him the daikon was in there because he panics when I use ingredients he hasn't had before. He loved it and wants me to find another recipe using it. Yeah!

Yum! We really like Daikon and this was a great way to use it. I used chicken thighs (I didn't have legs /w thighs) and the meat came out perfect, tasty & tender. The sauce took about 20 minutes on medium heat to cook down. After cooking the sauce down the Daikon kind of reminded us of a radish flavored potato (which is a good thing). I was afraid the sauce would be to bland but WOW it was good! It was a little to salty for me but the handsome man loved it. This is definitely a do again!

I thought this was delicious. The sauce was very good. My husband didn't like it, because of the daikon. He thought the daikon was bitter (I entirely disagreed), but thought the sauce with the chicken was very tasty. I used chicken breasts. I boiled the sauce in a separate pan for about 10 minutes to reduce it before adding it to the chicken, so the chicken wouldn't overcook.

Excellent. First time trying daikon and this was delicious and easy to put together. I actually used some leftover turkey I had frozen from Thanksgiving. I cut it in big chunks and used per the recipe. I did not have sake on hand but used a dry white wine.

Wicked dish. You saved us when my bro-in-law bought some Daikon by accident. (labled wrong in the grocery)We couldn`t find Mirin in our area so we subbed in some sherry. We had planned to make enough for dinner, packed lunch the next day, and leftovers. No such luck. Peanut butter sandwiches the next day; it was that good! Thanks
