Jjimdak – Braised Chicken with Glass Noodles

Jjimdak is a braised chicken dish that is great year round – but it’s fantastic in the fall because of the beautiful orange from the sweet potatoes and carrots, and because it has all of the delectable starchiness we crave when the weather turns cold!

Slow-Cooker Fall Soup with Chicken, Sweet Potato & Beans

If you prefer buckwheat noodles, you can absolutely use those instead.
