Food & Wine


3 tablespoons light miso paste
2 garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
3/4 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, caps quartered
2 tablespoons minced ginger
3/4 pound Napa cabbage, coarsely chopped (4 cups)
3 ounces daikon radish, peeled and thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
2 scallions, thinly sliced


In a bowl, whisk the miso, garlic, sesame oil and 1/2 cup of the stock. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper and cook over high heat until just cooked through, 4 minutes; using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate.

Add the shiitake, ginger and the remaining stock to the skillet. Cover and cook over moderate heat until the shiitake are tender, 2 minutes. Add the cabbage and chicken and stir-fry over high heat for 1 minute. Add the miso sauce and bring to a simmer. Stir in the daikon and scallions. Transfer to bowls and serve.
