Pan-fried Spicy Miso Chicken

Posted on Mon 29 May 2017 in Food

Jeez I just discovered I've only posted a single recipe on this. Time to change that.

Chicken for dinner tonight. I was feeling a little adventurous, and definitely wanted some miso involved, but also felt like cayenne pepper and shallow-fried chicken strips. Here's the result! This went really well on a base of bulgur wheat, and with a side of stir fried veggies.


  • Two chicken breasts, skinless
  • 2 tsp miso paste
  • 2/3 cup plain flour
  • 2 tsp celery salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp chicken stock powder
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  • Cut the chicken into strips, sized similarly to your two thumbs together.
  • Sift all the dry ingredients into a bowl, and stir or shake until mixed.
  • Taste your flour coating!! Make sure it's delicious, and make sure it's spicy enough.
  • Mix your miso paste with a little hot water until smooth. It should be quite thick, you don't want it dripping off.
  • Coat all the chicken in the miso paste.
  • Roll the chicken strips in the flour until thoroughly coated.
  • Pan-fry in a very hot pan, for about 2 minutes per side.
