  • Garlic Miso Chicken on a white plate.

    My kids love chicken wings. I usually use drumettes for them so they can easily enjoy these mini-drumsticks. This recipe was originally from my Japanese friend who used to live in San Francisco because of her husband’s work.

    My friend and I had our first and second kids around the same time (then she had third) and our kids played really well together. Since she’s shared this original version with me, I changed the recipe to fit my family’s taste. The recipe is very easy to prepare and I hope you will like these wings. The combination of garlic, miso, soy sauce, and mirin is simply amazing!

    3. Mince the garlic (I use a garlic press) and combine it with miso in a small bowl. We will not add soy sauce and mirin at this stage.

    4. Add the mixture into the Ziploc bag and rub it all over the chicken from outside the bag. Keep in the fridge for at least 4-6 hours (preferably overnight).

    5. About 3 hours before cooking, add soy sauce and mirin in the bag and mix well. Keep in the fridge until you are ready to cook.

    6. Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil (so that you don’t have to clean later) and put the wire rack on top. Place the chicken on rack skin side down first. Turn the broiler on high (no preheat) and place the broiler rack 6 inch away from the top (middle oven rack) and broil for 10 minutes, or until nicely browned. Then flip the chicken (now skin side is up) and broil for another 10 minutes. The cooking time will vary depending on the oven. Serve immediately.

    7. For chicken thigh or breast, preheat oven to 425 ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the meat on top. Bake for 30 minutes or more depending on the part you use. Turn the chicken over halfway during the cooking process.

    Recipe Notes

    The oven-safe wire rack helps getting rid of the oil from the chicken while cooking and wings will get crispy.
