Last night, I made one of my favorite dinners. In fact, it’s one of the wee ones’ favorite dinners, too. Unfortunately, I haven’t made if for a couple months, so when the wee ones saw it, they refused to eat it.
But Moooooooooom, it has sauce on it.
Mommy, I don’t like it.
Mommy, I don’t like this dinner.
I want something else, Mommy.
And no, they hadn’t tried it yet. This wasn’t shaping up well. But it’s a favorite. So I give you my Miso Glazed Chicken.
Miso Glazed Chicken
1/2 cup white or yellow miso paste (or a mix of the two)
1/4 cup sugar (scant)
1 T soy sauce
1/4 c chicken stock
3 T oil
1 T ginger, grated
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
This is a super easy one. Put all the marinade ingredients into a bag, and squish the bag until it’s all nicely combined. Then add chicken!
I prefer to let it marinate overnight in the fridge and cook it for dinner the next day. This time I marinated it only for three or so hours, and the flavors hadn’t quite penetrated the way I wanted, but it was still yummy!
After you’ve marinated it, pray that it’s warm outside and you can grill!
Or if you live in Chicago, pull out that grill pan and heat it up to medium/medium high. Once it’s fully heated, plop that chicken on down.
Cook until it has nice grill marks on one side, then flip to the other. Cook until it’s done all the way through. Let it rest for about five minutes before you serve it.
I like to slice it against the grain and serve it with some quinoa. Yum!
Oh, and twenty minutes into the meal, the wee ones finally tried their food. Below is Mister Man’s review. Little Miss helped out in the background, which also explains the shaking camera at the end, since she was hanging off my arm.
