  1. Heat 1 tsp vegetable oil in a large, heavy based saucepan over a high heat until hot. Add in the chicken and fry until browned on all sides. Carefully pour away any excess oil.
  2. In a bowl combine the miso paste, paprika, crushed chillies, soy sauce, garlic and honey. Add the mixture to the pan with 400ml water. Stir to combine, cover and bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer gently for 5 mins.
  3. Add the potatoes, onions, carrots, green pepper and most of the red chillies. Bring to a boil again, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20-25 mins until you can spear the potato and carrot easily with a sharp knife. Stir in the sesame seed oil and cook for another minute.
  4. Divide the stew between 6 bowls and serve with the rice. Scatter over the remaining chillies, spring onion and sesame seeds to garnish.
