Kimchi Stew Jjigae
Health Highlights


1 tbsp Butter, unsalted (1 to 2 tbsp.)
3 cup Kimchi (about a 16 ounce jar, it will expand when unpacked - check your local Korean restaurant/market or the refrigerated section at your grocery store - if you choose a mild kimchi, your soup will not be spicy at all, just full of flavor)
2 tbsp Soy sauce
2 breast(s) Rotisserie chicken breast, skinless (shredded)
4 cup Chicken broth (stock)


In a large pot (I used my beloved cast iron pot) melt the butter on medium/low heat (the butter adds a lot of flavor, don't skip the butter, PLEASE).

When the butter is simmering, add the kimchi and saute for a few minutes. Add soy sauce and chicken and stir a few minutes until everything's mixed well and heated through.

Pour in chicken stock and bring to a light simmer.

Serve and ENJOY!
