First, cut the chicken into bite size pieces and put them into a bowl. Mix the chicken with 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and ground black pepper with a spoon. Then set it aside.
Next, make the sauce by combining the garlic, ginger, gochujang, flakes, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and wine in a bowl, and mix everything well with a spoon.
Next, get a wide and shallow pan for the stir-fry. First, spread the cabbage on the bottom of the pan. Then, add the onion, chili pepper, carrot, rice cake, and sweet potato.
Then, put the marinated chicken in the center of the pan, on top of the vegetables, and put the sauce on top.
Cover and cook everything over medium high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir with a wooden spoon so the pan doesn’t burn and the ingredients and sauce mix evenly. Then lower the heat to medium and cover. Cook this meal until everything is cooked well.
