Wendell's Miso Grilled Chicken


Wendell made this awhile back (before my trip), and it was finger-licking good. The recipe is from Japanese Cooking 101 and can be found here

Huh? Those look like drumsticks and not thighs! Sounds simple and ono, though. Another must-try.

Hahahahaha, Lorna . . . you're right! Goes to show you that I don't even hardly read the recipes. I just cut and paste! And eat.

That looks so 'ono... how do you think it'd taste with white meat instead of drumsticks? I have all the ingredients!

j: is it sweet-ish? -N

jalna said...

It was, Kat!

It should be really good, Moki. The recipe actually calls for thighs.

N, I would say it's more savory than sweet.

Looks so delicious. I never thought that it would be easy to make. I've never used white miso before. Does it taste the same? I actually thought there was only 1 type of miso. Just thinking about eating chicken; have you tried Von's Chicken? They have a few locations. It's so good...sort of pricey. I have only tried Garlic Crispy chicken and Crispy Shoyu. There's 2 variations (crispy or roasted). Crispy is the BEST!

Mmiissee, white miso and red miso have different flavors, though I can't describe the difference. I've never had Von's Chicken . . . by your description, it sounds so good!

Mmm, I still have some white miso that I bought in Japan last year. I will definitely try this.
