Quick Miso Chicken
Editor's Note: Miso is a seasoning commonly found in Japanese recipes. With this Quick Miso Chicken, a burst of miso flavor and a taste of sweet orange marmalade come together to take a plain chicken breast to the next level. If you're looking for easy chicken breast recipes that the whole family will enjoy, this one's for you - it's quick enough to make any night of the week! This is a great way to incorporate a little Japanese flair to your cooking without venturing too far outside your family's comfort zone.
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.
