Ingredients
 

  • 1.5 kg chicken, giblets removed
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp brown miso paste, heaped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, freshly ground
  • chicken stock cube

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat the oven to 220 C gas 7.
  • Place the chicken into a baking tray on a bed of scrunched up foil, so none of the chicken is touching the base of the tray.
  • Mix the miso paste with 2 tbsp of the oil until it is nice and runny; you may need to add a little more oil.
  • Using a cooking syringe, inject the miso paste all over the chicken, paying particular attention to the breast meat.
  • Once done, drizzle the rest of the oil over the bird and season well with salt and pepper.
  • Place into the oven and cook for 20 minutes until you get a little colour, then turn down the heat to 180. Gas 4, or lower if you want to and cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • To test if cooked, place a sharp knife in the thigh, and the juices should run clear.
  • Remove from the oven, place on a plate cover with cling film and leave for 30 minutes minimum.
  • Pull apart into legs, wingtips and two breasts. Slice the breast meat with a sharp knife and cut through the leg joint.
  • Skim off any fat from the tray, place the bones and any juices into a pan, cover with water, add a little chicken stock cube (will depend on how salty the juices are, so check) and bring to a boil.
  • Simmer for the time the bird is resting, then thicken with cornflour and a little water.
