Kimchi is amazing. Not only does it taste great, it’s also pretty darn good for you, too. Although I don’t claim to be an expert on anything kimchi – I’ve only helped make it from scratch once – my biggest secret is to add kimchi as a flavoring for cooking. For example, my chicken kimchi stir fry:

Ingredients:

Sliced mushrooms

Spinach

Cooked and shredded chicken

Kimchi

Toasted sesame oil (optional)

Directions: Grease skilled as desired (cooking oil, cooking spray, or just use water, etc). Over medium-high heat, cook sliced mushrooms and spinach in a skillet until soft. Add shredded chicken (I used boneless skinless breast meat) plus desired amount of kimchi. Secret trick: pour in some of the kimchi liquid — the best flavoring! Cook a few more minutes until all ingredients are hot, the liquid has evaporated off, and the flavors have mingled. If desired (it’s a delicious addition), add a turn of toasted sesame oil after you remove from heat. Enjoy!
