Marinating is a great way to add interest to chicken.
If you are a fan of dark meat, go ahead and substitute for the chicken breasts. The molasses marinade gives the chicken a lovely, rich sweetness and a beautiful color. This dish pairs well with cooked grains and mixed greens. Blackstrap molasses is rich in vitamins and minerals, particularly iron, manganese, copper, calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and selenium. Ginger contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. Clinical studies have shown that people with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis experience reduced pain levels and improvements in their mobility when they consume ginger regularly. Growing evidence demonstrates the antioxidant properties of miso.
Combine miso, rice wine, turmeric and water; stir in to molasses mixture. Allow to cool.
Set ½ of the marinade aside. Refrigerate chicken in remaining marinade, 2 hours.
Remove chicken from marinade and discard used marinade.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Prepare grains according to package directions, enough to make four servings of cooked grains.
Bake chicken, covered, in an oiled baking dish, 45 minutes or until cooked through.
Garnish with green onions and cilantro.
Preparation: 20 minutes active, 2 hours to marinate and 45 minutes to bake
