  • 125g onion
  • 40g mushrooms
  • 3g garlic
  • 40g oil
  • 4g salt
  • Miso Confit:
  • 100g chicken fat

  • Miso confit*
  • 10g Chopped chives
  • Rice pot:
  • 50g cooked Mirepoix*
  • 160g washed Japanese rice
  • 190g brown chicken stock

Method

Mirepoix:
Cut all of the ingredients into nice 1/2 cm cubes. Mix all the ingredients and roast them at a high temperature.
Miso Confit:
Mix all of the ingredients together in a pan. Once fat and miso are melting together it’s ready to be used to season the chicken thigh.
Corn fed chicken thigh:
Put chicken and miso confit in vacuum bag. Cook in a water bath for 45minutes at 62.5°c. Roast in a pan, skin first, until crispy. Add chives on top.
Rice pot:
Assemble the rice and stock in a pot. Bring to boil, then lower the heat to a minimum for 10 minutes. Set aside for 5 minutes.
Open the rice pot and add:
1. Mirepoix
2. Chicken thigh
3. Slow cooked egg
4. Salt, pepper
5. Yakitori glaze
Cardinal rules of rice making:
Wash the rice 30 minutes before cooking and let it drain in a colander. Use a heavy, tight lidded pot. Adjust the amount of liquid used for boiling to fit the rice you are cooking. Do not remove the lid while cooking. Let the rice settle in a covered pot for 15 minutes after the heat is turned off.
