Dakdoritang ( Korean Stewed Chicken wt Potatoes)

Dakdoritang or Korean stewed chicken is a very easy and simple dish to cook in minimal time.The main ingredients of this dish is Kochujang.Kochujang is usually purchased in jars already prepared at Asian supermarkets and is an essential staple of the Korean kitchen. Since I'm addicted to Kdrama I try to sample all the Korean dishes by cooking myself at home. I used boneless chicken thigh,potatoes,carrot,onion ,napa and bell pepper to make this hearty delicious exquisite taste dish..


1 lb boneless chicken thigh,cut cube
4 medium potatoes,peeled and cut quarter
2 carrots,peeled and cut 2 inch
2 medium onion,peeled and cut cube
5-6 leaves napa,washed and cut
1 medium green bell pepper,cut cube

1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp kochujang (red chili pepper paste)
2 tbsp Dwenjang(fermented from soybeans)
2 liter water
2 tbsp sesame oil
salt to taste


1:Use a stock pot with oil and garlic at medium high heat.Saute garlic for 30 second before add in water,kochujang (red chili pepper paste) and Dwenjang(fermented from soybeans).
2:Bring to boil,add in potato ,carrot and chicken..Simmer for 10 minutes before add in the rest of the ingredients,sugar and sesame oil .
3:Cook for another 5 minutes.Check the seasoning before dish out and serve warm with steamed white rice.

This is delicious! What could be most ideal to use if I don't have Dwenjang? Does any other fermented bean sauce make a good alternative? Thanks Lesley.
