Asian Inspiration

While I love asian cuisine, it can be difficult to make the dishes at home when you have to buy all these little specific things like Mirin, Siracha, or sesame oil. So most of the time, I just end up not making these recipes.

But, I’ve developed a recipe, that surely I can’t call true asian, but it is definitely inspired by the sweet, tangy, umami flavors that you’ll find in those dishes.

This chicken has a crispy skin, glazed with a sweet soy sauce mixture, infused with the delicious aromas of garlic and ginger. Amazing on a bed of ramen noodles, quinoa, or to shreds and use in tacos!
