Chicken & Zucchini Jjajang Myeon with Kal Guksu
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
After a few days of eating in and around the hospital (see most recently 3.094 Chamchi Hoe), I was granted reprieve to go home and relax.
With the leftover ingredients that the nanny had used to make sujebi, and a tub of takeout jjajang sauce, I took a shot at my own jjajang myeon. The improvised kal guksu noodles weren’t as chewy/resilient as I would’ve liked, but otherwise everything else was pretty good; in fact, the shredded chicken breast was a nice addition – lean yet filling. If the sauce freezes well, I may keep some on hand. And I’ll have to experiment with other types of quick-fix noodles.
