This recipe is EXTREMELY easy. My mother made this recipe up and calls it Korean chicken. Mainly because she's Korean and it has soy sauce in it. Whenever I visit her, she makes this dish for me. This is my ultimate comfort food. I've made different variations, including adding some red wine to it. DELICIOUS! I serve it over white rice. You need to be careful with the soy sauce that you use. I use a big jug of Kikkoman soy sauce and it can be a little too salty. You might need to scale back on the soy sauce if that's the case. You will be amazed at the amount of liquid that comes from the chicken. The chicken, if cooked properly, should practically fall of the bone.
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon oil (olive oil is fine, or vegetable or peanut oil)
- 1 tablespoon gingerroot, finely chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 2 scallions, trimmed and sliced
- 8 chicken drumsticks
- heat oil in a sauté pan and sauté the chicken drumsticks just until they are golden brown on the outside.
- In a pressure cooker or a crock pot, put the chicken, soy sauce, and ginger in the pot.
- If cooking in a pressure cooker, it should only take about a half hour. crock pot should take longer. I've also cooked it in a Le Creuset dutch oven for 30 minutes and it tasted the same.
- Wait until the last five minutes of cooking to put the carrots and scallions in the pot.
I made this in the crockpot and served with white rice as suggested by the poster. It's extremely easy and delicious. My husband loved it, too. Today is my second time printing out the recipe to make it for dinner. Good sign!
Delicious and super yummy over rice. The ginger gave it a nice flavor and the soy sauce soaked up in the chicken. I cooked it with the pressure cooker method. I will cook this again.
