Maple Glazed Chicken With Miso
Miso or miso paste is a savory Japanese seasoning made from soybeans.
You might be familiar with miso soup, but don’t limit this fermented nutrient packed food to one favorite dish.
Miso can be used in stir-fry, dressings, and marinades!
The tangy and sweet flavors of this sauce is quite versatile and can be used on a variety of meats or fish!
In fact, I’m anxious to try this on salmon!
Where Can I Find Miso?
Miso can be found in Asian markets (that’s where I bought mine) in the refrigerator section.
Many larger supermarkets chains will carry miso in the organic section where tofu is stocked.
This finger-licking maple glazed chicken is kid and adult approved 🙂
Will Pancake Syrup Work In This Recipe?
No. Please be sure to use 100% pure maple syrup, not pancake or waffle syrup when making this maple glazed chicken recipe.
Maple syrup is more expensive, but the difference in flavor is well worth the price!
Pancake or waffle syrup is made with corn syrup and maple extract for flavor. Maple syrup is made from maple tree sap, which is naturally sweet.
What To Serve With Maple Glazed Chicken
A simple green salad is always a good choice as well as this cabbage salad.
