Cooking time: 40 minutes

Preparation: Marinate Chicken for an hour before cooking.



First things first, let's get some rice cooking. Koshihikari rice is our favourite for this Japanese inspired dish. Before we set the rice to cook, be sure to wash and rinse the rice using your hands. Fill the rice bowl with cold water until the rice is submerged underwater and using your hands, swirl the rice around to remove the starches and and remaining parts of bran. Carefully tip the water out and repeat the rinsing and washing process 3-4 times until the water runs clear, before putting the final cooking volume of water into your rice cooking bowl.  

Miso Pickled Vegetables


  • 900ml Water
  • 600ml Japanese Rice Vinegar
  • 300g Sugar
  • 1 heaped tablespoon Miso
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 4 Carrots, peeled
  • 2 sticks Celery
  • 10 Radishes

Wash all the vegetables, then cut the radish into six. Slice the celery on the angle, then top and tail the carrots, cut in half, then on the angle. Chop the cabbage into nicely sized chunks.
