Meals By Mo: Miso Soy Glazed Chicken Dinner

This is my first recipe post – so please bear with me as I learn how to do this better!

The year before Booth, while living in Atlanta, I started a meal prep company called Meals by Mo. I focused on making healthy easy meals and they were a big hit! By popular demand, I’m going to try out sharing some of my recipes!

One of my biggest qualms when hunting for recipes is seeing a recipe for one piece of the meal and not the entire meal. So, I will do my best to provide recipes for what I would define as a full meal – at least a meat with a veggie and starch accompaniment option. Mind you, I am not the best follower of directions, so I tend to use recipes as guides.

My newest obsession as of late has been whole roasted chickens. When done well, they are incredibly flavorful and delicious – nevertheless easy to cook. And, I love Asian flavors and cuisine- so this is what we’re making:

Visual Instructions

Don’t eat the center

Cut Out The Center (Don’t Stab Yourself)

Cut Cabbage down the middle into circles

Line and grease pan (less clean up)

Season with salt, pepper, olive oil

Season chicken with olive oil and pepper. Paint glaze on top.

The glaze is salty, you do not need added salt.

IF you wanna get fancy – stuff with aromatics. I used a clementine cut in half, half an onion, green onion

Put chicken in oven at 420 degrees. Cook 20 min for each pound that the chicken weighs. Baste halfway through and rotate. If it starts to burn, lower your rack.

Hello beautiful chicken!

Make your rice and sauté your mushrooms with the leftover sauce – Voila!
