  • Author: Shanthi Appelo


In this spring recipe, chicken and carrots are tossed in a sweet-and-savory miso glaze and roasted until tender and caramelized. Chopped green onions add freshness, flavor and a pop of color to the dish.



  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. miso paste
  • 3 Tbsp. honey or maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. sambal oelek or sriracha
  • 1 tsp. grated ginger or ½ tsp. powdered ginger
  • 1-pound carrots
  • 1-pound chicken breasts or thighs
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 3 cups brown rice, cooked


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce miso paste, maple syrup or honey, rice vinegar, avocado oil, garlic, sambal oelek and ginger. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the mixture.
  2. Using half of the mixture, marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes, but ideally 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. The chicken will take 10-15 minutes to grill, so start the carrots about 30 minutes before grilling the chicken.
  4. Toss the baby carrots in a large bowl with half of the with the miso glaze until well-coated.
  5. Spread the carrots a lined baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven. After 15 minutes, turn and add additional glaze reserved from step 4.
  6. Preheat the grill and grill the chicken. Roast the chicken for about 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the breasts or thighs, flipping halfway through. Grill until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  7. When carrots and both are done roasting, brush with the reserved miso glaze.
  8. Serve the miso glazed carrots and roasted miso-glazed chicken together on a plate. Top with green onions and serve with brown rice. Enjoy!
