The inspiration behind this recipe is “dakdoritang,” a Korean dish of chicken stewed in a spicy red sauce with hearty vegetables. Our sauce combines honey, soy, and gochujang (or Korean red chile paste), which create a sweet, savory, and spicy coating for the chicken. Along with roasted potato and cabbage, we're preparing another unique side: pickled enoki mushrooms. A splash of vinegar lends them bright flavor while preserving their delicate texture.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the potato lengthwise; cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick pieces. Cut out and discard the cabbage core; cut the leaves into ½-inch-wide strips. Cut off and discard the root ends of the mushrooms; place in a medium heatproof bowl. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice on an angle, separating the white bottoms and green tops.

Roast the potato & cabbage:
2 Roast the potato & cabbage:

Place the potato and cabbage on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in a single, even layer. Roast, stirring halfway through, 23 to 25 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Pickle the mushrooms:
3 Pickle the mushrooms:

While the potato and cabbage roast, in a small pot, combine the vinegar, a pinch of salt, and ¼ cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, carefully pour over the mushrooms. Add the white bottoms of the scallions. Stir to combine. Set aside to cool, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the chicken:
4 Cook the chicken:

While the mushrooms cool, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot.Add the seasoned chicken, skin side down. Cook, occasionally pressing down with a spatula, 6 to 8 minutes on the first side, or until the skin is golden brown. Flip and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, carefully drain off and discard any drippings.

Make the sauce & finish the chicken:
5 Make the sauce & finish the chicken:

To the pan of reserved fond, add the honey (kneading the package before opening), soy sauce, ¼ cup of water, and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add the cooked chicken. Cook, occasionally spooning the sauce over the chicken, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly thickened and the chicken is thoroughly coated. Turn off the heat.

6 Plate your dish:

Divide the roasted potato and cabbage between 2 dishes. Top with the finished chicken and sauce and pickled mushrooms (draining before adding). Garnish with the green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
