This Korean chicken main dish with potatoes, onions, and carrots is served over a bed of rice. Seasoned with soy sauce, sesame seeds, and, of course, garlic.
- 1 (2 to 3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup water
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- ¼ cup white sugar, or to taste
- 3 potatoes, or more to taste, quartered
- 2 large carrots, sliced into large diagonal pieces
- 1 large onion, sliced
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 1 Place a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard fat.
- 2 Mix soy sauce, water, garlic, sesame oil, and sesame seeds together in a large bowl. Add sugar to taste, remembering you can always add more, but you can't take away. Stir to mix well and dissolve sugar. Fold in potatoes, carrots, and onion. Season with pepper.
- 3 Pour vegetables into the Dutch oven to cover chicken. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil, about 5 minutes. Stir and reduce heat to medium for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and simmer 40 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
