Spicy Korean Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by J e l i s a

This was one of my favorite dishes growing up...mom would make it at least once a week. Sometimes she would add potato cubes and fresh ginger, but this is the way we preferred it. I'm not sure what the proper name for it is, sorry! If boneless chicken is used, you can skip the first step, that is only done to discard extra fat from the skin.

The Korean name for this dish is Dak Dori Tang. I was born in Korea and spent 3 years there as an adult between the 2 Air Force Bases there. You can find this in Korean restaraunts in the US and throughout Korea (in the hibachi style/cook in front of you restaraunts). You can also add the clear noodles to the potatoes, and carrots! Definitely one of my favorites!
