    Garlic Miso Chicken Bento on a table.

    After two long weeks, my routine is finally back to normal when my husband came back from his business trip yesterday. I realized how much I rely on him on day-to-day tasks around the house and helping with the children. Now I can get back to focusing more on my blog work besides parenting.

    Lately I received positive feedback from readers that my recipes are very easy to prepare even on busy weekdays (thank you!). I’m happy to suggest to you one of our family’s favorite recipe again, and that’s Garlic Miso Chicken.

    Have you tried the combination of garlic and miso? It is very delicious, just the right amount of saltiness and savory. For this recipe, I only used common Japanese condiments  miso, soy sauce, and mirin. We really love the marinade and I hope you will enjoy this recipe.
