Crispy! Chicken Skin Stir-Fried in Spicy Miso

Crispy! Chicken Skin Stir-Fried in Spicy Miso

With a rich sweet and spicy miso sauce, this dish is so tasty and goes amazingly well with beer and rice!!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken skin
250 g
as needed
Green pepper
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
1-1.5 tablespoons
Grated garlic
to taste
White sesame seeds (to sprinkle)
as needed


1. Combine all of the sauce ingredients except for the miso.
2. Chop the chicken skin in bite-sized pieces, coat in katakuriko, then stir-fry in a frying pan.
3. Stir-fry over medium heat until crisp (use the rendered oil from the chicken skin to fry them). Pour out the excess oil, then add the green peppers and other vegetables of your choice and continue to stir-fry.
4. Once the vegetables are cooked through, add the sauce from Step 1, evenly coat the ingredients, transfer to servings plates, sprinkle with white sesame seeds and serve!
5. You can also boil or deep fry the chicken skins. If boiling, don't coat in katakuriko, and omit the water from the sauce ingredients. Discard the boiled water, and thoroughly drain the chicken skin. Transfer to a frying pan, coat in the sauce over medium heat, then serve!

Story Behind this Recipe

The flavored chicken skins sold at my neighborhood supermarket were tasty, but were pricey, so I came up with my own version.
