STEAMED MISO CHICKEN
Lay the carrot on the base of your Varoma, removing the middle tray.
Combine your marinade ingredients of Shiro miso, Tamari, Mirin and the juice of half of the lemon in a bowl and then generously coat the whole chicken including the underside.
With the used lemon stuff into the cavity of the chicken along with the other half. Place chicken on top of the carrot pieces and your Varoma lid on top.
Set your Varoma ontop of the TM and cook for 35min / Varoma / Speed 1.
Check at 35min your water level and top up if required - I did about another 200gm. Cook for a further 45min / Varoma / Speed 1.
Once finished, check that your chicken juices are running clear, otherwise cook for a further 10min.
Let the chicken rest for about 10min, I just let it sit in the Varoma while I got my garnishes and corn ready.
You can either use the chicken like this or if you prefer a crispy skin, put into a 200deg oven for about 15min.
While the chicken is in the oven, add you noodles, corn, cabbage and zucchini to the broth and cook for 2min / reverse / 100deg / speed1.
Pour the broth into your Thermoserver, shred about 1/2 chicken into your broth, add seaweed and spring onion garnish and Yum!!
Shiro Miso is white miso paste and available from Health Food or Asian groceries. It is wonderful to use if you ever run out of Vegie Stock Concentrate and has a lovely earthy flavour.
The carrots are used to prevent the Chicken from blocking all of the vents during cooking, I chop them up and throw them through the soup, but you can discard if you wish.
Any noodles or even rice can be used with the broth and any leftover chicken can be used the next day.
This is for 4 people, but could easily feed 6 if you use all of the chicken and an extra packet of noodles.
Try adding whatever vegetables you have to the broth.
