Simple Simmered Marinated Daikon Raddish and Chicken

Simple Simmered Marinated Daikon Raddish and Chicken

You can make this in no time if you have daikon and chicken. I'll share a tip that will allow you to marinate the daikon in no time at all!


Daikon radish
Chicken thigh
1 thigh
1/2 to 1
Flavoring ingredients
■ Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
■ Sugar
2 tablespoons
■ Mirin
1 tablespoon
■ Sake
1 tablespoon
100 ml
Dashi stock granules
1 teaspoon
For parboiling the daikon
Dashi stock granules
1 teaspoon
enough to cover the daikon


1. These are all the ingredients you need. Try not to cut the daikon radish too thickly or thinly. If necessary, parboil the konnyaku.
2. Parboil the daikon radish. Add the daikon, water (enough to cover the daikon), and dashi into a pot. Cook for about 15 minutes over medium heat. This is important!
3. Add the chicken thigh into a frying pan and stir fry until it browns lightly. Add the konnyaku and daikon.
4. Add 100 ml of water, dashi, and the ■ ingredients. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes over low heat until the flavor has been fully absorbed by then daikon and it's done.
5. For this, I thinly sliced the daikon, and substituted chicken with pork and konnyaku with chikuwa.
