Miso Chicken

Don’t know what to do with your beautiful Sunshine Organic Miso? The majority of people I spoke to today at Sherwood Road Organic Meats – while dishing up this delicious Miso Chicken Stir-Fry – had only ever used Miso paste in soups and broths (if at all)!

But did you know Miso paste is so much more versatile! Due to it’s high salt content, it works well as the ‘salt’ element in marinades, meat tenderising, dressings, dips and more. In this Miso chicken stir fry, I’ve marinated the chicken in some Miso and then stir-fried it with veggies, garlic, ginger, chilli, lime juice and honey. That’s it! So simple and delish!
