Chicken and miso is this a thing?? I love a quick miso soup, and all the flavours that go with it.  So marinating the chicken in miso and soy, was a no brainer. It helps to soften the chicken, and tenderise it. Its quick, easy and simple to create a chicken miso bowl, with endless ingredients to mix and match with, make it as simple or complicated as you like. Try cherry tomato halves, a softly boiled egg perhaps.
