Daikon and Chicken Sautéed in Doubanjiang Paste

The spicy kick from the Doubanjiang makes this a perfect match with rice!

200 g
Daikon radish
Green onions
to taste
Sesame oil
to taste
1 clove
1/2 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon


1. Mince the garlic, then chop the chicken into large bite-sized pieces. Parboil the daikon or microwave until tender.
2. Add sesame oil to a heated frying pan, reduce to low heat, then sauté the garlic in doubanjiang paste.
3. When the garlic starts to become aromatic, stir fry the chicken on high heat, then add the sake when browned.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this since I was craving a slightly spicy side dish. It was a challenge to come up with the right recipe since the absorption of soy sauce depends on how long the daikon has cooked.
