Baked Miso Chicken





We realized that we don't cook enough recipes from our fellow bloggers' sites. I mean all those great recipes you all post and we rarely experiment with them! So Michael was browsing around the other day on some of your blogs and found a yummy looking miso chicken recipe by Mary at One Perfect Bite. Check out her site if you haven't, she's got some really great posts. We modified her original recipe just a bit. If you do decide to try this recipe, you might have trouble finding miso. We found some at Harris Teeter, but it was 7 bucks for a tiny tube! We are lucky enough to have an Asian food mart nearby and Michael picked up a tub of it for $2.50. Much better deal. However, now we have this giant tub of pasty looking miso so we need something else to do with it... any suggestions? Mary's original recipe says to marinate the chicken for 3 hours, but we made it on a weekday so just marinated it all day (12 hrs) and it turned out fine. We actually made the marinade the night before so we just had to throw it in a bag with the chicken the next morning, come home & toss it in the oven for a quick supper! Serves 4-6.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup mirin
  • 1/2 cup miso
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 6-8 (about 2-lbs.) boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

Directions

  1. Combine soy sauce, mirin, miso, onions, ginger and garlic in a small bowl. Divide marinade into 2 parts. Pour half into in a one-gallon zip-lock bag. Shake to mix well.
  2. Add chicken pieces and coat well. Refrigerate for 8-12 hours. Refrigerate reserved marinade in a separate container.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry with paper towels.
  5. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer on a large rack set over a baking pan. Cook for 30 minutes. Brush with reserved marinade.
  6. Transfer chicken to a serving platter and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Yield: 4 to 6 servings.

Oooo I love miso! My favorite way that I've had it is over eggplant. It's super fantastic! This looks just gorgeous!

Conor @ HoldtheBeef said...

The chicken looks so perfectly cooked. Nice and healthy baking it too. Miso is great with salmon, you could use up some of it that way?

Beautiful food photo. I love the green onions against the bed of sesame seeds. Sounds delicious

Dee said...

Great looking dish. Maybe it is better to marinate it as long as you did. The color is certainly right & rich looking. Beautiful food photo. I must make this soon. (good idea to make the marinade the night before)

Ivy said...

We are always looking for unique ways to prepare chicken and this looks great! We also got one of those huge tubs of miso and it's taking awhile to get through it so I'll have to try this :)
