Step:

  1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Quickly fry in the frying pan and then place in a colander. Pour hot water over the chicken and drain.

  2. Peel the lotus root and cut into slices 7-8mm thick. Cut in half so that they look like flowers. Soak in slightly vinegary water.

  3. Rehydrate the shiitake mushrooms and then diagonally cut in half. Peel the burdock and chop. Soak in water.

  4. Cut the head section of the bamboo shoot vertically into 8 pieces. Roughly chop the remaining bamboo shoot. Boil for 2 minutes and drain in a colander.

  5. Cut the konnyaku into slices 7mm thick. Cut a slit in the center and twist the konnyaku to form "bridles." Place in boiling water and boil for 2-3 minutes. Drain in a colander.

  11. Note: When you first cook the chicken separately, cook it until it is browned and then don't add to the main pot until about 15 minutes after the vegetables have cooked to prevent the chicken from falling apart. This will create a nice end result.

  12. When you cook the chicken, first cook until the skin side is browned, and then quickly cook the opposite side as well.

  13. Note: Remove the carrots halfway through simmering so that they don't become too soft. You could also add them later on.

  14. If you serve it out into individual dishes, it is easier to eat.

  15. Tip: Instead of soy sauce, if you use fish sauce, it will also turn out delicious. These have a light and delicious taste.

  16. Refer to https://cookpad.com/en/recipes/143313-basic-dashi-stock-for-the-first-pressing for details on how to make the dashi stock. If you feel like the flavor is not enough, you can add a little bit of instant dashi stock granules.
