This was a healthy throw together meal, which resulted from me wanting to use up some miso I haven't been able to use quickly enough. This is a easy fast recipe, and some of the prep work like chicken and broccoli chopping can be done while cooking.
- 1⁄2 lb chicken breast, cubed into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1⁄2 lb chinese broccoli or 1⁄2 lb italian broccoli or 1⁄2 lb bok choy
- 1 sweet onion, diced small
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 3 tablespoons peanut oil or 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons red miso
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 green onions
- 3 tablespoons parsley
- Stir fry garlic and onions in oil until they are slightly cooked (about 2 minutes).
- Add chicken meat and cook until mostly cooked (about 5 more minutes).
- Add chinese broccoli cut into bite size pieces along with miso and cook about 2 minutes more.
- Add soy, water and cornstarch and bring to a boil.
- Check seasoning once chicken has cooked through, and add salt as desired.
- Garnish with green onions and parsley.
- Serve with rice.
This is totally delicious!! The red miso and soy sauce (in combination with the other ingredients) give it a rich, complex flavor that is truly amazing! I made the recipe as written--but used reduced sodium soy sauce, lower sodium red miso (Kyoto Red Miso), and left out the salt--and all of that worked well. The most challenging part of making this stir-fry was finding the red miso (after a bit of a hunt, I found some in the dairy section of the Whole Foods Market); it was definitely worth the effort! I look forward to making this again! Thanks for a great recipe, MC Baker!!
This was a GREAT recipe! My husband thought I bought it from a resturaunt. HAHA! I substituted miso for 1 and half teaspoon of ground ginger and extra soy. I omitted the sweet onion all together and added extra green onions.. using 5 in all. I also put a beef bullion cube in my half cup of hot water it dissolved about halfway. I threw out the half bullion cube that didn't dissolve and used the partial bullion water for the recipe. It was really good I plan on using it OFTEN!
