Teriyaki Chicken Over Miso Rice

Just with the color alone you know that you will get a very tasty chicken and rice dinner. The secret for a delicious-looking chicken is when it has a rich color of almost burnt brown. Because of the soy sauce and honey, I got the result that I was looking for. And the flavor is teriyaki - that makes it even a world better because aside from sushi and sashimi, teriyaki is the third best Japanese food for me. So let's start with this simplified version of chicken teriyaki that I paired with miso rice. It's easy and and really worth your time. I can actually do this over and over again.

First, you have to know that it does take only half an hour to cook everything but give at least 2 hours for the marinating time (better if longer of course). Second, I added the lemon slices for presentation initially but when then, they lent a lovely subtle citrus aroma and flavor to the dish so my advice is, don't skip them. I tried this dish without the lemon slices before and I think with them is much better. 

Remember that miso comes in three colors that pertain to different degrees of saltiness. Miso is a Japanese paste made of fermented soybeans (can also be rice, barley and other ingredients) salt and koji. Red is the saltiest which is the kind I used in this recipe, yellow is medium and white is the least saltiest. Just adjust the amount of miso according to what kind you have.
