Grilled Honey Miso Wings

Grilled Honey Miso Chicken Wings Recipe

Just when I thought I could devote entire week to writing headnotes for my cookbook, Scott reminded me that corporate taxes were due end of the month. “End of the month!??? That’s like in a few days! Why didn’t you tell me before?”

Of course, he did. Everyday for the past 10 days he’s reminded me, but I’m the mistress of procrastination and born with true talent in only hearing what I choose to (says my mom too)….covering ears…”lalalalalala!”

So this week’s recipe development centered on all things grilled….I make it, Scott grills it, the kids clean up. Our entire family understands the “shared responsibility” rule, but what they don’t know is that my portion only takes 10 minutes. Shhhh…..we won’t tell them, will we?

Grilled Honey Miso Wings

Here are the ingredients. The recipe features either using miso paste that you can fine at most grocery stores, Asian markets, Whole Foods or other health food grocery stores…..or Miso & Easy (you can buy it online at Marukai) which is miso paste in a convenient squeeze bottle.

Miso & Easy is a client of mine – I create recipes for them – if you want more miso recipe, all of them are right here!
