Miso Chicken with Eggplant

All these years I’ve been blogging I met the most wonderful people. Through this hobby of mine, I got to know so many people around the globe, enter their kitchens and learn things about their lives and countries. Thanks to them I have cooked so many wonderful recipes and learned not only new dishes and ways of cooking but also many interesting things about local cultures.

One of these fellow bloggers whom I follow regularly is Sissi. Sissi lives in the French-speaking part of Switzerland.

Miso Chicken with Eggplant

As she mentions in her blog: “I am an avowed chilli addict and a very eclectic cook, with a distinct penchant for Asian cuisines (Japanese, Korean, Thai and Indian meals appear most frequently on my table). I love filling up my pantry with pickles, sauces, savoury jellies, liquors…. I have a big passion for wine and am particularly fond of Burgundy wines and German rieslings. Like most home cooks, I have always tried to keep my recipes on paper. Putting them online is a great way to share my culinary passion with you. I hope it will push me to become more disciplined and organized, improve my cooking skills, my English, not to mention learning to properly use my camera!”

Miso Chicken with Eggplant

Sissi has a very thorough knowledge regarding the Japanese kitchen and generally the Asian way of cooking. I love her recipes and although most of them are quite hot for my stomach to bare, with some alterations that are necessary I find her recipes to be one of the most delicious ones.

When my family asks for Asian, I know exactly where to look up to find a delicious, tried and true recipe to cook. I have tried this recipe a long time ago but somehow it pilled up at the bottom of others and I totally forgot about it. As I was arranging my photo files I saw this delicious Chicken with Miso and Garlic Sauce and I thought I should share it with you. It is really, really good, restaurant style Asian dish only homemade which makes it even better. I made some small alterations to the original recipe but other than those I followed it as it was. If you want to check this and other delicious recipes I suggest you visit Sissi’s site here: http://www.withaglass.com/?p=10547. I am sure you will find something appealing to you.
