Wash the zucchini and cut into 2” pieces on the diagonal; then peel and slice the garlic and onion. Cut the chicken into 1” cubes.
Heat a large pan over medium high heat; add the oil. When it starts to shimmer, add the chicken and sear for 7 minutes, until about halfway cooked. Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic and onion; cook for 3 minutes.
Add the zucchini, soy sauce, sugar, kimchee base and water, if needed. Cover the pan and simmer on low heat for about 8 minutes. Enjoy this easy-to-prepare dish with steamed rice and your favorite beer.
