Sweet and Savory Chicken and Nagaimo Yam Stir Fry

The soft and chewy taste of the nagaimo yams is super tasty.
As a sweet and savory dish, this goes perfectly with rice.

Story Behind this Recipe

This was a recipe using kimchi, but I revised it as a sweet and savory sauce so that children could eat it as well.
