Saturday was full of cooking for me to feed my friends at home and the star of the show for this dinner was the chicken with miso, ginger and lime (as a note on the side: I do enjoy the very descriptive recipe titles in SIMPLE).
I’m actually rather proud of how this came out of the oven, almost exactly like it was pictured in the book!
I haven’t cooked much with miso before this so I was very intrigued to find out more and see what kind of flavour it would impart on the chicken legs in just such a short period of time (there wasn’t really any time to let the chicken soak in the marinade). It worked great and the chicken had a very rich and deep flavour.
Using miso here in such a simple way inspired me to play around with it more. Just today I used some miso for some simple scrambled eggs with spinach for lunch which I can highly recommend doing.
The coriander stems and spring onions worked well in combination with the side dish of potatoes and the sauce which consisted of a mix of the marinade and the fat from the chicken was a real hit. The only problem? No leftovers…
