Korean-style Daikon Radish with Chicken


  • 1 medium daikon radish or other root vegetable of choice
  • 4 boneless chicken thigh (may substitute with chicken breast but taste might be less rich) or substitute tofu
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
Cooking sauce:
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp sake
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp mirin
  • pepper


1. Prepare the daikon and chicken/tofu. Peel daikon and cut into 1/2 inch half moons. Cut chicken/tofu into 1/2- 1 inch pieces. Heat oil. Add daikon and chicken and sauté over high heat. Stir in crushed garlic and chili flakes/pepper.

2. Add all ingredients for the cooking sauce. Cook over medium heat, constantly skimming. When the sauce has nearly evaporated, sprinkle sesame oil. Remove from heat and serve. Great with rice or noodles!
