About the Recipe

There are lots of ways of flavouring chicken but not many better than spreading over a layer of shiso miso. I also add some spinach for extra nutrition and fibre. This is one of those recipes that once you make it, it will become a family favourite just as it is in my home.


1 tsp veg oil


1 thinly sliced piece of chicken breast

1 tsp plain flour

1 sheet cling film*

1 nori sheet

150g cooked Japanese rice

1 tbsp shiso-miso*

10g spinach

*the cling film should be slightly bigger than the nori sheet, about 30cm square

**see how to make my shiso-miso in the recipes section


heat 1 tsp of oil in a frying pan

meanwhile coat the chicken in the plain flour, fry the chicken for 2 mins each side

lay the nori sheet on the cling film and spread half of the rice in the centre of the nori sheet

spread the shiso-miso over the rice

place the chicken on the shiso-miso, pile the spinach on top of the chicken, then place the rest of the rice on the top

take the two side corners of nori sheet and close them over the filling

take the top and bottom corners and close over the


use the cling film to form the onigirazu into a neat parcel

rest for 5 mins and then cut in half using a sharp knife
