Preparation

Cut chicken thighs into 1-inch square pieces. Put in a bowl and splash with 1 tablespoon sake; let sit for 10 minutes.

Peel and cut carrots, burdock root and potatoes into 1-inch square pieces. Remove mushrooms stems and cut caps to match the vegetables and chicken. Blanch snow peas and cut pods in half diagonally.

Heat a deep saucepan over high heat and add sesame oil. Add burdock root, sauté for 1 minute and then add chicken. Sauté for 1 to 2 minutes, and then add carrots, potatoes and mushrooms; add dashi broth.

When the broth starts boiling, add sugar. Cook over high heat for about 5 minutes.

Add soy sauce and remaining sake and continue to cook until almost all the liquid is cooked down, 10 to 15 minutes.

Add mirin and let alcohol evaporate; this process gives a nice glaze to the ingredients.

Remove from heat. Garnish with snow peas. Serve warm or cold.

Notes

To make dashi:

Combine kombu, bonito flakes and water used to soak the shiitake mushrooms.
