Ingredients

CHICKEN AND VEGGIES

  • 600 g boneless, skinless chicken thighs (1lb 5oz)
  • 1/3 cup cornflour (40g)
  • 250 g broccolini (8.8oz)
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 Tbsp rice bran oil
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame beans (155g)

SAUCE

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp finely grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup white miso paste (70g)
  • 1/4 cup water (60ml)
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp mirin
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sugar

TO SERVE

  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 x 250 g microwave pouches brown rice (2 x 8.8oz)

Instructions

  1. PREPARE CHICKEN AND VEGGIES

    Dice chicken into 2cm (0.8in) pieces. Place in a clean resealable bag or container, season with salt and pepper and add cornflour. Shake to coat.

  2. Trim any dry ends off the broccolini and thinly slice spring onions.

  3. MAKE SAUCE

    Crush garlic. Whisk together garlic, ginger, miso paste, water, vinegar, mirin, soy sauce and sugar.

  4. TOAST SESAME SEEDS

    Place a large frying pan or wok on medium heat. Add sesame seeds and toast until golden brown. Remove from pan and set aside.

  5. COOK CHICKEN AND VEGGIES

    Add oil to pan and increase heat to high. Add chicken and stir fry until golden brown and almost cooked through (about 5 minutes). Add broccolini and edamame beans and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in sauce and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, until sauce has thickened and veggies are tender.

  6. SERVE

    Microwave rice according to instructions on the packet. Divide between warmed serving bowls and top with chicken and veggies. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to finish.

    This looks like a good recipe for utilizing miso. Perfect for making rice bowl with broccoli, too. Always looking for new ways to try chicken and I would love to try your recipe with miso.
