Ginger-Garlic Chicken with Miso Slaw

We love chicken so I  was inspired to make a chicken marinated  in ginger, soy sauce and garlic.
I used thighs and chicken breasts.  This dish is easy and you can either grill  it or bake it.
The marinate gives it a wonderful flavor.


Ginger Chicken

  • 1 chicken 3-4 pounds
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 Tablespoon five-spice powder
  • 2 Tablespoons of honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp grated onion (yellow) or
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes


  1. Cut the chicken into serving pieces.- 2 drumsticks, 2 thighs, 2 wings, quarter the breasts.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together, the garlic, ginger, 5 five spice powder, honey, soy sauce, onion, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Transfer to a large ziploc bag and add the chicken pieces.
    Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  5. Put in oven 375 and bake 35 + minutes until chicken is done.
  6. Serve chicken with Miso Slaw.

Miso Slaw


  • 2 Tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon white miso
  • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons of seame oil
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 head of green cabbage- shredded
  • 1/4 head of red cabbage - shredded
  • 2 green onions - sliced at an angle
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the sesame seeds, rice vinegar, miso, ginger, salt, & pepper.
  2. Add the sesame and canola in a steady stream, whisking constantly, until emulsified.
  3. Add the red and green cabbage and toss. Refrigerate at least an hour.
  4. Serve with Ginger chicken
