An Asian-infused sesame and miso glazed chicken with a fresh, crunchy noodle salad. Yum!

If you’ve ever been to a Japanese restaurant you’ll know how much of a staple miso is! This delicious foodstuff also has plenty of health benefits, according to BBC Good Food. Because it is a fermented foodstuff, miso contains plenty of probiotics – those good bacteria that are beneficial for digestion.

But what is miso?

Miso has been used as early as the 4th century in China by fermenting a mix of soybeans with wheat and alcohol. The earliest recorded written form of ‘miso’ is around 800 AD! As miso gained popularity in ancient Japan and its recipe was refined, it became a staple part of the samurai diet. Nowadays many companies produce miso, often incorporating extra flavours and ingredients to make a more unique version. For me, it’s a winter staple as you can buy miso soup (‘misoshiru’) cubes in lots of stores to which you just add boiling water to create a deliciously savoury and warming soup. You can also add little cubes of tofu, and dried seaweed if you have it. Delish. Of course, you can also use it in a variety of Japanese dishes to give meals that yummy umami flavour, and that’s why it works so well with this glazed chicken and crunchy noodle salad recipe!

Crunchy noodle salad, a summer classic

This recipe for crunchy noodle salad is perfect for summer, especially if you cook the chicken earlier and let it rest for a while until serving time. Just like Caesar salad, it’s still a really filling and enjoyable salad that even the kids will wolf down! Best served cold, this crunchy noodle salad will even keep you cool in summer.
