Chicken Drumsticks & Daikon Radish Simmered with Miso & Soy Sauce

Chicken Drumsticks & Daikon Radish Simmered with Miso & Soy Sauce

I added a little miso to my usual simmered chicken drumsticks and daikon radish recipe. It was delicious.

Ingredients: Serves 4

Chicken wing drumettes - the large end of the wing
8 - 10
Daikon radish
2 cups
Dashi stock granules
1 teaspoon
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon


1. Pour the oil in the pan and start cooking the chicken drumsticks, skin side down. When they start to brown, flip and continue cooking.
2. Add the daikon radish. Shake the pan to coat everything with the oil. Drizzle in the sake and add the water and dashi stock granules. Continue cooking.
3. Skim off the scum. When the daikon radish is cooked through, add the sugar and mirin and simmer for 5 minutes (use medium-low heat). Put the lid on!
4. Add the soy sauce and simmer for 10 minutes. Finally, add the miso and let it dissolve.
5. When you're ready to eat it, heat it again and add daikon leaves for color (if you have them).
