What is Miso Yaki Chicken? 

Miso chicken is a chicken dish that is popular in Japan. Miso Yaki chicken, simply put, is chicken thighs or breasts (the latter for this recipe) that is cooked in a miso paste mixture. ‘Yaki’ means ‘cooked over direct heat’. Miso paste is made from fermented soybeans, salt, and ‘koji’, a type of mold also used to make sake, a Japanese alcoholic beverage made from fermented rice. Miso paste is mixed with rice vinegar, mirin (rice wine), and sugar, and cooked over heat in a pot until it coats the chicken and becomes sticky. This combination gives the chicken a lovely savory and unami flavor, and adds a unique kick that will spice up your weeknight chicken meal for sure.  

Healthy Too! 

Miso paste is also good for you! As it is a fermented food, miso paste contains probiotics, healthy bacteria which improve gut health, boost your immunity, and in some cases can help alleviate with depression and anxiety. Miso paste also contains many vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K, E, and folic acid.  

Whether you are experienced in Japanese cooking or not, miso paste will take your meat dishes to the next level, and ensure mouthwatering, savory flavor every time!
