Apricot miso glazed chicken
Miso is the elegant Japanese term for fermented soybean paste. When mixed with sweet and spices and cooked it creates a unique but gentle flavor. It lasts up to a year in the fridge, so if you buy it once, place it in a jar or container and pull it out when needed. You can make this recipe without the paste and it will still be bold and colorful and delicious! You can make this dish with any cut of chicken (or tofu!), just cook longer or shorter depending on the cut and remember on the bone is always juicier!

Ingredients:
Directions:
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Prepare a large skillet on high heat. Add the olive oil and get hot. Add the chicken and let sear for 6 minutes. Turn over and let sear for 2 more minutes.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the scallions and sesame seeds) and a ¼ cup of water and mix well. Cover and let cook for 5 minutes on high heat.
  3. Add 1 cup of water and let cook on medium heat for 20 minutes.
  4. Add scallions and sesame seeds right before serve.
Notes & Tips:

I used a combination of black and white sesame seeds because I like how they look, but feel free to use just white or none! If you have big eaters at home and don’t think two drumsticks per person is enough feel free to halve or double the recipe!

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

Pull apart the chicken and add it to extra salad with miso dressing for a envy worthy filling lunch. Serve room temperature and only add in dressing right before serve.  Add rice to make it even more filling!
