HAPPY 2021! I hope everyone is having a safe start to the new year.
I’ll be giving my at-home meals a new flare this year with nutritious, delicious, and affordable products from Safeway’s Exclusive Brands. I’ve been featuring Safeway brands starting last year and have become a fan of these affordable alternatives that are high-quality because they have a wide range of products so it is easy to prepare meals at home.
Let me give you more info about the different exclusive brands available at Safeway. There are: O Organics®, Open Nature®, & Signature Brands. O Organics® offers high-quality, non-GMO and 100% USDA-certified organic products. Open Nature® provides high-quality, minimally-process high-quality products which are free from 110 food additives. It includes plant-based, high protein, and gluten-free options. Signature bands include Signature SELECT™, Signature Farms®, and Signature Cafe® options. They offer options for every meal and occasion including ready-to-eat, ready-to-heat, and cooking ingredients. These brands can be found in every aisle of your local Safeway so I suggest you try them out!
Today I’ll be adding soy-sauce braised chicken to my weekly rotation because it is an easy one pot meal to make and can last over several meals. This recipe is very filling because of the noodles and potatoes. I’m adding cheese to my recipe for an updated take on this classic Korean dish. Make sure to finish the noodles & cheese and the leftovers can be saved for another day.
RECIPE FOR KOREAN-STYLE SOY SAUCE BRAISED CHICKEN
3 Open Nature Chicken Thighs & 3 drumsticks, soaked for 30 minutes
1t ginger, minced
1T garlic, minced
2 O Organics potatoes, halved
2 carrots, 2” chunks
½ onion, sliced
6 O Organics Mushrooms, sliced
½ cup Signature SELECT Stir-Fry Rice Noodles, soaked
¼ cup oyster sauce
¼ cup soy sauce
1T brown sugar
2 O Organics green onions, julienned
½ cup O Organics Mozzarella, finely shredded
Sesame oil drizzled
Combine the ingredients for the sauce & set aside.
On medium heat, add oil & sear the chicken on both sides.
Add minced garlic & ginger and cook until fragrant.
Then add the potatoes, sauce, & 2 ½ cups of water and cook with lid on for 15 minutes.
Add carrots & onions and cook for another 10 minutes with the lid open to reduce the sauce.
Add the soaked noodles and mushrooms and cook until the sauce has thickened.
Season with black pepper and sesame oil.
Add the cheese on top and cook until it has melted.
Garnish with green onions & enjoy!
Hope you will try this recipe out and let me know what you think! I personally think that it tastes even better the day after as leftovers when the chicken has soaked up even more flavor from the sauce. Also, the sauce goes well over some rice and the leftover chicken can be eaten as a side dish to the meal.
I shopped at my local Safeway. Shop these affordable high-quality products at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, Tom Thumb & Vons. Safeway also offers Grocery Delivery and DriveUp & Go™ for convenient ways to shop. I’ve seen the designated spaces at my local Safeway for DriveUp & Go and it is a good option if you don’t want to go inside the store.
