Miso chicken

I’ve been having a real craving for asian-inspired flavours and foods lately. Plus I found this gorgeous organic brown rice miso paste at Sherwood Rd Organic Meats so have been enjoying experimenting with that. So today, I bring you a simple yet delicious dinner for one which can be easily scaled up for 2 or more, and made vegan as well. Miso-honey Glazed Chicken.
