Andong Jjimdak Recipe (Korean braised chicken) serve with potatoes, carrots, glass noodle with soy sauce and chicken thigh in a large plate.

To me, Korean foods are one of my favorite foods in the world. If you read my blog, then you know that I love their food since it is spicy and healthy. Most of the Korean food recipes I made all started from the restaurant I ate.

A few months ago, me and friend from South Korea went to an authentic restaurant, and we order a delicious Korean spicy Chicken dish called Andong jjimdak. The portion is so big that it can serve up to 6 people.

What is Andong JJimdak?

According to my friend, this dish originates from a Korean city called Andong, which is similar to chicken adobo. It is considered one of the few dishes that does not use gochujang (Korean red chili paste).

The chicken is braised in a pot, which has the sweetness from the brown sugar and sesame oil. Furthermore, it has mild saltiness from the soy sauce and mild spiciness from the green chilies. I find this dish healthy and nutritious since it contains high protein from the chicken and vitamins from the vegetables.

It is one of my favorite chicken dishes since it reminds me of the Filipino adobo. In this post, I will be showing my version of this Korean Braised Chicken.

Recipe Ingredients

Here are the ingredients of my version of this savory Andong jjimdak recipe:

Ingredients of Andong Jjimdak Recipe (Korean braised chicken)

MEAT: In this recipe, I am using chicken thigh. I prefer thigh or drumstick over breast because it is more tender and delicious.

VEGETABLES: There are two vegetables I use which is the chop potatoes and carrots.

CELLOPHANE NOODLE: The Korean glass noodles serve as an add-on carbs along with the vegetables, which blends well with the sauce. You can purchase this noodle in any Asian grocery store.

GREEN CHILIES: The green chilies give the mild spiciness of my jjimdak recipe. However, it is not very spicy since no gochujang paste is added to this dish.

THE SAUCE: These sauces are important ingredients, which gives the saltiness and sweetness of my korean braised chicken recipe:

  • Soy Sauce
  • Oyster Sauce
  • Vinegar
  • Sesame Oil
  • Brown Sugar
  • Minced Garlic

Things to do before cooking this recipe

When cooking Korean braised chicken, you must first soak the glass noodle. I soaked it in warm water, and leave it there for 30 minutes or when it becomes soft enough.

Also, because the glass noodle is too long, I cut them first with a scissor before putting them into the pot. This is considering optional, and you can do that when serving the food or during cooking.

Cooking Instruction

Cooking Andong Jjimdak Recipe may seem difficult because it contains so many ingredients. But, in my opinion, it is easy and straightforward since you boil all of them in the same pot.

Firstly, I sauté the chicken in the pan till it turns brown. It doesn’t have to be cook since the rest will be done through boiling in the pot. Also, this is just optional- meaning you can cook your chicken directly in the pot.

Next, pour water, onion, ginger, and chicken into the pot. Turn on the heat and let the chicken boil for 15 minutes. Next, add the sauce mixture, green chilies, and potatoes & carrots. Give a stir and then lower to medium heat. Continue boiling the meat mixture for 10 more minutes.

After that, add the glass noodle and the spring onion. Stir it and then lower to heat to simmer for 5 more minutes. Once it is cooked, transfer it to a large plate and serve it with hot steam white rice.

Note: Unlike other Korean dishes, you don’t need to add any side dishes, except rice, since this recipe is considered heavy.
