From the Test Kitchen

Deliciously chewy, crowd-pleasing Korean rice cakes, or tteok, get welcome brightness from a sauce of sweet chili, orange marmalade, vinegar, and more, which we’re using to coat bites of tender chicken and cabbage while cooking. A dollop of cooling crème fraîche, stirred in just before serving, gives just a touch of creaminess to the dish.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. In a bowl, combine the sweet chili sauce, orange marmalade, sesame oil, vinegar, soy sauce, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

2 Cook the broccoli & rice cakes:

Add the broccoli florets to the pot of boiling water. Cook 2 minutes. Add the rice cakes and continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until the broccoli is bright green and the rice cakes are tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. 

Cook the chicken & cabbage:
3 Cook the chicken & cabbage:

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Place in a bowl; add the cornstarch and toss to thoroughly coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sautéed aromatics on medium-high until hot. Add the coated chicken in an even layer (shaking off any excess cornstarch before adding). Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat.
