Garlic Chicken

I used to hate most vegetables specially garlic and onion. But now I can eat any kind of vegetables and you'll be surprised that garlic and onion are one of my favorites. I put much garlic and onions when I cook that's why it makes my cooking more delicious. Garlic and onions are the secret of a good cook, I think. I like garlic and onions with samgyopsal or daejigalbi. I like pickled garlic when I eat gukbap specially naejang gukbap and soondae gukbap. I like garlic bread, garlic or onion flavor when I buy snacks, etc. Don't come closer please, I smell garlic. mwahaha...

When I don't have anything in mind on what for our meal, I just order food. So the menu is usually chicken. I was looking for the advertisement book when the garlic flavored chicken caught my attention. I told hubby to try it and he agreed. It's our first time to order chicken from Don (Money) Chicken which endorsed by Lee Gyoung Gyu. I'm not his fan. Actually, I don't like him. He's a comedian but not funny. I just see his rudeness. Maybe because of his character on tv. I don't know if he's like that in person.

Anyway, it seems like Don Chicken is a new brand chicken 'coz it's my first time to see it on the advertisement. The price is same as the other chicken brands like Gyocheon, BHC, and Ssal Ssal Chicken. It's more expensive than Mexicana, Pelicana, etc.. so I expected that it would be more delicious. I'm right guys! It's delicious even without sauce. But they also give 2 kinds of sauces. Hot and spicy and garlic sauce. Guys, it is worth trying! Actually, I already collected 3 coupons from last week.

Eat raw fish before summer

Hubby said we have to eat raw fish while it's not hot. In summer, it's not good to eat raw fish so it's better to eat now rather than craving it in the summer. My hubby met his friend last Tuesday evening to have dinner. But when hubby came home, he said he wanted to eat raw fish. I think he was still hungry so I ordered this for only $25.

It's the restaurant where we usually order raw fish but this time there aren't many side dishes. Because of economic crisis, the prices of all products raised so I expected that they would also increase the price of their menu like most restaurants did. This seafood restaurant didn't increase the price but decreased or removed some side dishes. That's better I think because we can't eat all the dishes. We just want the raw fish and we are not into their side dishes.

Simmered Chicken Dish (Ttakkogi Chongol)

Simmered Chicken Dish (Ttakkogi Chongol)

Ingredients: 2/3 lb. chicken, 5 dried brown, oak mushrooms, 1/3 carrot, 2 oz. watercress, 2 oz. garland chrysanthemum, 1/3 lb. konyak: jellied potato-cake(used like a noodle), 20 gingko nuts, 2 eggs, 1 green onion, 4 cloves garlic, ginger juice, 2 tbsp. soy sauce, 1 tbsp. sesame oil, 1 tbsp. red pepper powder, 1 1/2 tbsp. sugar, 1 tbsp. red pepper paste, salt, black pepper, MSG

Method:1. Prepare the legs and breast of the chicken by removing the meat from the bones and cutting it into thin strips. Simmer the bones to make the chicken broth .
2. Soak the dried musrhooms in water, remove the stems and cut them into thin strips. Cut the round onion and carrot into thin strips.
3. Cut the small green onions and watercress into 2" lengths.
4. Peel and fry the gingko nuts in an oiled pan. Place them on paper and rub off the top-skins.
5. Cut the konyak into 3/4" x 2 3/4" pieces. Slit each piece down the center leaving the ends intact and twist one end through the slit to shape it like maejagwa, thin Korean cookies.
6. Mix the green onion, chopped garlic, soy sauce, black pepper, sesame oil and salt to make the seasoning sauce. Season the chicken and dried mushroom strips separately.
7. Place the seasoned chicken in the center of a shallow cooking pan, surrounded by the prepared vegetables. Pour the broth over the ingredients and bring to a boil. When the flavor has developed, add the ginko nuts and garland chrysanthemum and bring to a boil and serve.

Hint: The konyak is absorbed in this chicken dish making it more flavorful.
