Tsukune are flavourful grilled chicken meatballs, and they're right at home nestled into piquant peppers. Depending on your heat tolerance, you can either remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapeños for milder spice or leave them in for extra kick. Make sure you pierce both the jalapeños and the chicken inside when skewering the peppers to help keep the chicken in place during grilling.
In bowl, whisk together 1 tbsp of the mirin and the miso paste until smooth. Stir in chicken, green onions, mushrooms, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper until combined. Spoon into jalapeño peppers. Thread 2 of the jalapeño pepper halves crosswise onto 2 soaked wooden skewers. Repeat with remaining jalapeño pepper halves and 10 additional skewers. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)
Place, cut side down, on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill for 5 minutes. Turn skewers; grill until chicken is no longer pink and instant-read thermometer inserted in centres reads 165°F, about 10 minutes.
Whisk together remaining mirin, soy sauce and oil; brush over chicken before serving.
If comfort food is what you're after, nothing beats a generous helping of creamy, oozy mac and cheese. This recipe is the yummiest version – and the only one you'll ever need.
Chicken, Rice and Thyme Biryani Credits: Jodi Pudge Source: Canadian Living Magazine: September 2016
Browning the chicken and cooking the biryani in the same pan keeps cleanup to a minimum and infuses the rice with flavour.
Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 tsp salt and pinch pepper. In Dutch oven or large heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat 1 tsp olive oil over medium-high heat; cook chicken, turning occasionally, until golden, about 7 minutes. Transfer to plate.
Drain all but 4 tsp fat from pan; cook onions over medium-high heat, stirring, until golden, about 6 minutes. Stir in broth, rice, thyme and 1/4 tsp salt, scraping up browned bits; bring to boil.
Arrange chicken, skin side up, over rice mixture. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, for 10 minutes before serving.
