Recipe's preparation

  1. Place garlic into mixing bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 5. Set minced garlic mixture aside for use when steaming the whole miso chicken.

  2. Place onion, wakame and shitake mushrooms into mixing bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 5. Empty the mixture into the simmering basket.

  3. Place 1300g of the water into the mixing bowl, and position simmering basket containing the wakame mushroom mixture into mixing bowl.

  4. Steamed Whole Miso Chicken
  5. Lay the carrot on the base of your Varoma, removing the middle tray.

  6. Combine your marinade ingredients of minced garlic, red miso, tamari, Mirin and the juice of half of the lemon in a bowl and then generously coat the whole chicken including the underside.

  7. With the used lemon stuff into the cavity of the chicken along with the other half. Place chicken on top of the carrot pieces and your Varoma lid on top.

    Set your Varoma into position and cook for 35min /Varoma/Speed 1.

  8. Check at 35min your water level and top up if required - I did about another 250gm. Cook for a further 45min /Varoma /Speed 1.

  9. Once finished, check that your chicken juices are running clear, otherwise cook for a further 10min.

  10. Let the chicken rest for about 10min, I just let it sit in the Varoma while I got my garnishes and corn ready.


  11. While the chicken is resting, remove the simmering basket containing the wakame mushroom mixture. Add the ramen or soba noodles and corn to the broth and cook for 2min / counter-clockwise operation/100deg/speed1.

  12. Pour the broth and noodles into 4 individual bowls, shred about 1/2 the chicken into each bowl, garnish with shredded seaweed, spring onion, toasted sesame seeds, butter and enjoy!

This recipe is a variation of the original recipe by Nicole Johnstone

Nicole suggests that if you prefer a crispy skin for the chicken, you can place the chicken into 200deg oven for about 15min before shredding and serving.

For us, there was so much leftover chicken – we used them in sandwiches the next day.
