We love being able to marinate and then cook in the same pot. This spicy braised chicken will taste even better the next day (if you're lucky enough to have any left over).

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken legs, split (about 5 thighs and 5 drumsticks)
  • 1/2 cup sake
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons gochujang (Korean red chile paste)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 5 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • White rice, for serving
  • 2 scallions, roughly chopped, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

Directions

Put the chicken, sake, ginger, salt and pepper in large pot or Dutch oven and use your hands to massage the marinade into the chicken. Set aside to marinate for at least 10 minutes.

Put the soy sauce, brown sugar, gochujang, sesame oil, garlic and onions in a blender and mix until smooth.

Add the blended mixture and the chicken stock to the pot with the chicken and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 15 minutes.

Add the carrots to the chicken and cook on medium heat for an additional 10 minutes. Using a ladle, skim off any fat from the surface, turn the chicken pieces in the liquid, add the potatoes and cook until you can pierce the potatoes with a fork and the sauce is thickened, for 10 to 15 minutes. Skim off any remaining fat from the top. Add the lemon juice and stir.

Serve over white rice and garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.
