Another great way to serve chicken- Japanese style with delicious miso paste… I served it over broccolini fried brown rice…so, good!
- 2 tablespoons dark miso paste
- 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
- 3 garlic cloves, grated
- ½ teaspoon honey
- 2 teaspoons mirin
- 2 large chicken breast halves on the bone with skin
Mix all the ingredients together. Loosen the area between the meat and the skin with your fingers and place the miso paste on both pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Marinate for 2 to 3 hours.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 teaspoons dark miso
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
Heat a large frying pan with the oil on medium heat and brown the chicken pieces skin side down for 2 to 3 minutes or till golden brown- be careful not to burn as miso and honey burn easily. Transfer the pieces to a baking sheet and bake in a 400 degrees oven for 15 to 20 minutes or till the chicken is cooked through. Keep aside.
In the meantime, pour any excess fat from the frying pan. Add the green onions and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes on medium heat. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil and simmer on medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes or till about ½ cup is left. Add the miso paste and mix well. Season with salt, pepper, parsley and basil and serve with chicken.
