Cooking the Chicken

Grilling the chicken

Grilling the chicken gives it a delicious smoky flavor and helps to crisp up the skin. Heat a grill to medium-high heat and place the marinated chicken on the grill grates. Cook for about 10-15 minutes on each side until the chicken is fully cooked and the skin is crispy.

Tips for grilling the chicken

  • Make sure to preheat the grill before placing the chicken on it.
  • Oil the grill grates to prevent the chicken from sticking.
  • Flip the chicken halfway through the grilling process to ensure even cooking.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check if the chicken is cooked internally to a safe temperature of 165°F (74°C).

Making the Sauce

Recipe for the sauce

To make the flavorful sauce for “만원 닭볶음탕,” you will need the following ingredients:

  • 8 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons red pepper flakes (adjust the amount based on your preferred level of spiciness)

In a mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, and red pepper flakes. Stir well until the sugar is dissolved and the sauce is well-mixed.

Using Ssamjang sauce

For an extra kick of flavor, you can also add ssamjang sauce to your dish. Ssamjang is a Korean dipping sauce made from fermented soybean paste, red pepper paste, garlic, and sesame oil.

Adding the Potatoes

Importance of potato size

The size of the potatoes is important when cooking “만원 닭볶음탕” to ensure they cook evenly and in a timely manner. It is recommended to cut the potatoes into slices that are approximately 1cm thick. This size allows them to cook through within 10 minutes, ensuring they are tender and flavorful.

Adding potatoes to the dish

Once the chicken is cooked and set aside, add the sliced potatoes to the same pan and cook them until they are slightly browned. This step adds a delicious texture and flavor to the dish. The potatoes will cook together with the chicken, absorbing the flavors of the sauce while retaining their softness.

Adding Onions and Peppers

They will absorb the flavors of the sauce and complement the chicken and potatoes beautifully.

Cooking and Finalizing

Boiling the dish

After adding the onions and peppers, pour enough water into the pan to cover all the ingredients. Bring it to a boil over medium heat. Boiling the dish allows all the flavors to meld together and creates a rich and aromatic broth.
