Ingredients

Miso paste

2 tbs

Mirin

1 tbs

Fresh ginger

1 tsp, 2cm piece, chopped

Honey

2 tsp

Sesame oil

1 tsp

Soy sauce

¼ cup(s), (60 ml), dark variety

Skinless chicken drumstick

8 individual, (buy 8 x 70 g individuals)

Cauliflower

1 medium, cut into florets

Carrot(s)

1 medium, finely chopped

Frozen green peas

cup(s), (80 g), thawed

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Egg(s)

1 medium, beaten

Green shallot(s)

3 individual, thinly sliced

Oil spray

2 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Combine miso, mirin, ginger, honey, sesame oil and 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce in a flameproof baking dish. Add chicken and turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat a hooded barbecue over medium-high heat (see tip). Turn off burners under flat plate (leaving grill side on). Cook chicken (in dish) on flat plate, with hood down using indirect heat, for 55 minutes, turning and basting occasionally, or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, place cauliflower in a food processor. Using pulse button, process until it resembles rice.
  4. Lightly spray a wok with oil and heat over high heat. Stir-fry carrot for 4 minutes. Add peas and garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add cauliflower and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, or until cauliflower is just tender (do not overcook). Transfer to a plate.
  5. Lightly spray wok with more oil. Add egg and swirl pan. When egg is set at the sides, but still runny on top, return cauliflower mixture to wok and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, scraping sides. Drizzle over remaining soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. Stir through shallot and serve with chicken.

Notes

You can also cook chicken in an oven preheated to 180°C for 55 minutes or until cooked.
