Dak galbi is another spicy, stir-fried chicken dish that all Koreans seem to love. The main dish between this and other spicy dishes is the addition of cabbabe and usually perilla leaves, giving it a distinct and satisfying aroma. There are many dak galbi restaurants/quasi-bars that set up a single, large frying pan in the center of the table for everyone to enjoy the meal together (Koreans literally love eating together). For people familiar with this, you will know that you are not completely finished with the meal when the pan is empty, but rather an ajumma (or waitress) will add some rice and other ingredients to make delicious bokkeum bab (fried rice combinations). It’s kind of equivalent to getting something free when least expect it. Anyways, we made this tonight and it came out just right. We even have some funny pictures below to prove how good it was.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
