Mindful Miso Chicken

Miso paste is a fermented product made from soybeans and either white or brown rice. Fermented foods are very beneficial to the health of the digestive tract and the good bacteria that reside there. I love the smokey, salty and earthy taste you get from miso. It is really versatile making it great in soups (enter the classic miso soup), sauces, salad dressings, marinades and of course in the tasty recipe below.

Cook time: 20 – 25 minutes
Prep time: 5 – 7 minutes


6 chicken thighs
1 tbsp. Rice wine vinegar
1/2 tbsp. Miso paste
1 tbsp. Sesame oil
1/2 tbsp. Chili paste
Sea salt
black pepper
1 tbsp. unrefined virgin coconut oil

Mix all rub ingredients together and set aside. Crank a cast iron or oven safe pan to medium heat and melt coconut oil. Once heated add your chicken skin side down. Let cook until skin is browned and flip. Rub the skin side with the marinade you have set aside and place the whole pan in a 350 degree oven. Bake for approximately 15- 20 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken thighs.

Serve with roasted vegetables, toasted nuts and dressed micro greens. Enjoy!
