Korean Stir-Fry Chicken

Special.Fork's picture
Korean food is getting to be all the rage, with food trucks like Kogi in Los Angeles. Today’s video recipe is a simple, one-pot Korean-inspired dish: Korean Sti-Fry Chicken. When cooking the chicken, be sure your pan and oil are hot. Don’t crowd the pad or the chicken will steam instead of fry -- cook in two batches if your pan isn’t large enough. And let the chicken sear on one side before tossing, to keep chicken from sticking to the pan. You can garnish this dish with additional sliced green onion and more toasted sesame seed. And if you like a stronger sesame flavor, add a little sesame oil to the peanut oil when you cook the chicken.
  Thinly sliced broiler fryer chicken 2 Cup (32 tbs), skinned, boned (1 Whole Chicken Breast And 2 Thighs)
  Ginger 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Soy sauce 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon, divided
  Peanut oil 2 Tablespoon
  Sesame seed 3 Tablespoon, toasted and crushed
  Green onions 2 , chopped fine (Tops Included)
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Bean sprouts 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Hot cooked short grain rice 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)

In large bowl, mix together chicken, ginger, salt and 1/2 tablespoon of the soy sauce. In large frypan, place peanut oil and heat over medium high temperature. Add chicken mixture and stir fry until chicken is opaque, about 3 minutes. Add sesame seed, onion and garlic, continuing to stir fry about 2 minutes. Add bean sprouts and stir just until heated through, about 1 minute. Finally, gently stir in cooked rice and remaining tablespoon of soy sauce. Serve immediately. Makes 4 Servings

Cooking Tips: Place sesame seed in frypan over medium temperature. Stir and cook until golden, about 3 minutes. Crush with mortar and pestle or blend quickly in blender.
