If you’re looking for a new way to make chicken here is a nice change of pace.  It’s made with a wonderful Asian ingredient called Shio-Koji.  Shio-Koji is a Japanese traditional condiment made from malted rice and salt.  Its salty flavor can be a great substitute for salt, by lowering the overall salt content to less than 50%.  Shio-Koji is a live food that is rich in enzymes.  It brings out the umami in foods.  Shio-Koji imparts a rich savory flavor making any dish delicious.  It is excellent to use when marinating fish or meat and can be found in most Asian grocery stores.

INGREDIENTS

2 Tablespoons Miso

1 Tablespoon Shio-Koji

1 Pound Chicken Thighs

4 Tablespoons Plain Yogurt

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

In a medium size bowl combine the yogurt, miso and Shio-Koji.  Mix well to combine.  Place the chicken thighs in a large ziplock bag and pour the Shio-Koji mixture in the bag to cover the chicken.  Zip up the bag and give a good shake to ensure that all of the chicken is nicely covered.  Place in the fridge and let sit for at least 2 hours.  Place a large size sauté pan on the stove and pour in the olive oil.  Turn the heat to medium-high and place the chicken thighs into the sauté pan.  Cook one side for 3 minutes and then turn over.  Cook the other side for another 3 minutes.  Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for15 to 20 minutes.  Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving plate.  Serves 2
