Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ Tbsp plain flour / all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp julienned ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic

Kimchi Chicken Stir Fry Procedures

Method:
  1. Cut chicken breast into 2.5-cm (1-inch) chunks. Season with salt and pepper. Lightly coat with whisked egg, followed by plain flour.
  2. Heat enough oil covering a pan over medium heat. Shallow-fry the chicken until all sides are golden brown and cooked through. Place on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.
  3. Discard the excess oil in the pan, leaving about 1 tablespoon of oil. Saute ginger and garlic over medium high heat. Don’t burn the ginger. Toss back the chicken in pan. Add Kimchi and spring onion. Stir to combine. Season with light soy sauce and mirin. Add a dash of sesame oil to increase the fragrance. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
Notes:
  • Make sure not to cook the Kimchi too long in order to keep as much nutrients as possible. Simply combine it with other ingredients.
  • Don’t cut chicken into too large chunks. Otherwise it takes quite long to cook them through. You can test the chicken with a chopstick. If it can easily poke through, it’s cooked.
  • Mirin is a Japanese condiment with a very light sweet taste and low alcohol content, available at supermarkets or Asian grocers. (See the picture of mirin here.)
