One of my coworkers is a total foodie, so I often find myself gabbing with him about food and cooking. Yesterday, he mentioned this recipe to me, and I instantly wanted to try it out. I've been needing a good Asian-style way to cook chicken, and this totally fit the bill. It's super quick to whip up, and only takes about 15 minutes to cook, start to finish.
The one potentially intimidating ingredient is miso paste. I'd never even seen miso paste, let alone buy it. There were 6 different kinds at my local Whole Foods...want to know how I chose this one? It had a recipe for Miso Soup on the container, so I figured it was a good choice :) Ha!
Bo and I loved this recipe. You'll notice that we used chicken thighs and cooked them on the grill. Don't do what we did. Follow the recipe, and use chicken breasts cooked in a skillet. The grill overpowered the mild miso flavor; it will stand out more if cooked in a skillet. We rate this recipe a 4 Spoons as we cooked it, but we think it'd be an easy 5 spoons if it were cooked as directed in the original recipe.
Thanks for the recipe, Ray Ray!
