Step By Step Instructions


Add the chicken pieces to a large bowl along with the miso paste, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Toss everything to coat the chicken well. Cover and let it marinate in the fridge for half an hour while you prepare the remaining ingredients.


Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and wait until it is hot. Then add the chicken pieces in batches, being careful not to crowd the pan. Sear on one side for 2 minutes before flipping over.

The chicken will be browned after 3 minutes of cooking on each side; add more oil as necessary between batches if necessary, keeping in mind that there should not be much leftover oil at this point. Remove the chicken pieces from the pan to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.


While the chicken is cooking, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a saucepan and place it over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, orange zest, and brown sugar/honey, and cook until the garlic is fragrant (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat.

Grind all ingredients in a food processor to get a smooth paste. Now, put it back on the heat, and let it come to a boil while stirring continuously.


When the dish is ready, pour it over the chicken pieces. Serve while warm.
