Preparation

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 220°C. Place the butternut, oil and salt in a bowl and toss to coat. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper, and roast for 20 minutes.

  • Whilst it roasts, make the sticky chicken miso by mixing all the ingredients together, then adding the chicken thighs. Allow them to marinate while the butternut cooks.

  • After 20 minutes, add the chicken thighs to the butternut dish, as well as all the miso marinade, and return to the oven. Cook for a further 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds, coriander leaves and finely sliced spring onion, and serve!
