Well we weren’t lucky enough for the storm to shift this time. Nothing historic but we got what they said we would. Fortunately it was the dry fluffy stuff so it’s not hard to shift. It was the bitter cold this morning that was a bit much. It was -8F/-22C.
You get warm shovelling! There was an article last week that suggested exercises to do while shovelling. I’m guessing the author has never shovelled in their life. Never mind they suggest people over 60 be careful because it increases your chance of heart attacks. Simple shovelling raises the heart rate and it’s hard work! I’m not doing deep knee bends and lunges while I shift the stuff. I mean, really.
Here is our front garden after a week of snow.
In one of the cooking competitions some one mentioned a maple miso glaze which intrigued me. The problem with these competitions they throw out ideas but don’t tell you what they do so with just the inspiration I thought it would be fun to try with a stir fry and roasted chicken.
In a dish mix about 2 tablespoons of maple syrup with miso. I used about 4 tablespoons of miso but it was incorporated about a tablespoon at a time. Add a teaspoon or two of amino acids and a couple of tablespoons of peanut oil.
Add a handful of chopped scallion and 3-4 cloves of garlic finely chopped.
Stir well. Marinate the chicken for at least an hour.
Roast the chicken in an oven at 350F/175C until done or mostly done. When the chicken is on the bone it might not be cooked all they way through once the glazed skin is done. That’s ok because the chicken will be stir fried.
Heat up a couple of tablespoons of peanut oil in a wok. Add the chicken first to cook through.
Then add the chopped veg and the rest of the marinade. Add a few splashes of lime juice and some chopped fresh cilantro.
Serve with rice noodles and chopped peanuts.
This is a mild stir fry but full of flavour. And perfect for bunking down during a storm. 🙂
Oh how I don’t miss northern winters. This looks like a very flavorful dish. Stir frys are a favorite of mine.
I love them when we need a quick meal! 🙂
Isn’t shoveling exercise enough, good grief. I have been shoveling for days now and no end in sight. Would love to have some of your stir fry after I work up an appetite getting rid of the snow around my house. If only someone would cook it for me.
Luckily it’s an easy dish! Oh I know, it’s freaking cold out and after shoveling I’m very hot. Can’t imagine wanting to do more!
Very, very good recipe…love the addition of lime and cilantro ( coriander on this side of the pond)…very clever stuff:)
Thank you! I bought miso for the first time so i’m experimenting a bit. 😊
Love that glaze.
Thank you. I don’t do them often because they can burn easily but i do like them.
Sounds so good! Minus the chicken of course. I’d try it with tofu. We use miso all the time, I get the low sodium variety.
It would be fab with tofu! 😊
simply damn delicious and comforting miso chicken stir fry…..
Thank you so much! 🙂
I always mean to try something with Miso, and I always forget! Sounds delicious!
Same here so i finally just bought some. 😊
🙂 Virginia, you’re a woman after me own heart! I grew up in a very small town and after I’d moved to a city, I made it a point to buy something at the grocery store, every time I went, that I had never heard of! I’d long forgotten about that!
