This is a dish I make all the time in my toaster oven. Since microwaves and countertop convection ovens have largely replaced the toaster oven, I’ve adapted the recipe for the range.

Yield: 4 Portions


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, about 6 ounces each
  • 2 tablespoons medium-colored miso
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable, canola, or corn oil


Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or wax paper, and pound thin with a mallet.

In a small bowl, whisk together miso and orange marmalade. Sprinkle chicken breasts lightly with salt and pepper and brush all over with marinade. Let stand 30 minutes.

Warm a nonstick sauté pan with the oil over medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken. Cook on first side 3 minutes. Flip. Baste tops with any remaining marinade. Cook on second side 3 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Flip, cook 15 seconds, and transfer to plates.

    This chicken was very good. Kids liked it and my husband commented on how good dinner was last night. Easy to make.
