Chicken Stew with hot and spicy Korean sauce




This stew is packed with tender chunks of chicken, potatoes, carrot and onions.  I added 2 teaspoons of chilli flakes to the hot and spicy Korean sauce to give it the extra 'kick'.  This stew did go down well with hot white rice but I preferred to have it with bread instead.

    1. I suppose you can use other chilli sauce, add some chilli flakes if you'd like a spicy taste.
