Andong Jjim Dak–Andong-Style Chicken


While in Korea, my cousin made a delicious chicken recipe for me that I immediately asked her about.  Of course she didn’t give me exact measurements, but I copied her dish to the best of my abilities and I think it came out pretty well.  I have to admit though that my cousin’s tasted better.  Maybe it’s just me, but I always prefer someone ELSE’S cooking to my own.  =P

Although I had half a defrosted chicken in my fridge, I felt a bit unsure about using it since it had been in my fridge a few days.  =/  So I threw it out and went about bought some chicken today.  Better safe than Salmonella.  =P


First, give your chicken a nice bath.  I used four drumsticks and three boneless thighs.  This was enough to feed two kids and two adults.

In the pot, add the following:  1 CUP water, 1/3 CUP soy sauce, 3 TB minced garlic, 1 TB oyster sauce, 1 TB honey powder, 1 TB brown sugar, 3 TB rice wine, 1/2 TB of sesame oil, dash of ginger powder, and a dash of pepper.

Grab some jujubes.

Throw in the dates once the water starts to boil…

I had some dried red peppers so I added those as well.

Meanwhile, get some glass noodles ready.

I also added some green and red peppers.

Add some dae-pa (large green onions).

Add some onions and potatoes.

Let everything cook for about 20 minutes…

And then add the glass noodles and let it cook until the noodles are done.

As soon as the potatoes and noodles are done – you’re ready to serve!



  1. Hi there , i love your blog your recipes are so informative and this looks too delicious! I have a question about this recipe , can it be made using cubed boneless , skinless chicken breast? Im not a fan of dark meat . If not , is it ok if the drumsticks are skinless or will it be too dry?
