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.

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