Chicken ingredients:

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

Cut chicken into 1” pieces. Toss with Tamari, ginger and pepper. Marinate overnight in refrigerator in shallow airtight container.

Slaw ingredients: 

  • 1/4 head green cabbage, thinly shredded
  • 1/8 head red cabbage, thinly shredded

In small bowl, whisk together the miso paste, Tamari, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger and pepper. Drizzle ½ of the dressing over the slaw; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
