chicken legs for miso butter


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons white miso paste
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


1. Prep the Chicken:
Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Allow the chicken to come to room temperature for even cooking.
2. Preheat the Pan:
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and swirl to coat the pan evenly.
3. Sear the Chicken:
Carefully place the chicken breasts in the hot skillet. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (75°C). Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
4. Prepare the Miso Butter:
In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, white miso paste, minced garlic, grated ginger, and honey (if using). Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
5. Add Miso Butter to Chicken:

Spread a generous dollop of the miso butter mixture over the cooked side of each chicken breast while they are still hot. Allow the butter to melt and create a flavorful coating.
6. Serve:
Transfer the miso butter-coated chicken breasts to serving plates. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
7. Enjoy:
Serve the chicken with miso butter alongside your favorite sides, such as steamed vegetables, rice, or a salad.

Tips and Variations:

Flavor Infusion: For even more flavor, marinate the chicken breasts in a mixture of miso paste, garlic, ginger, and a touch of soy sauce for about 30 minutes before cooking.
Cooking Alternatives: If you prefer, you can grill the chicken instead of pan-searing. Brush the miso butter on the chicken during the last few minutes of grilling. Creamy Sauce: For a saucier dish, melt a spoonful of miso butter in the skillet after removing the chicken. Add a splash of chicken broth or white wine and cook for a minute or two until slightly reduced. Drizzle this sauce over the chicken when serving.
Vegetable Pairings: Serve the chicken with miso butter over a bed of sautéed spinach, roasted asparagus, or stir-fried bok choy for a well-rounded meal. This Chicken with Miso Butter recipe combines the succulence of perfectly cooked chicken with the umami richness of miso butter. The combination of flavors creates a mouthwatering dish that's sure to impress. Feel free to customize the recipe to your preferences and enjoy the delightful blend of tastes in every bite!
