Miso Chicken is roasted in a rich, buttery miso glaze and served with a mixture of sugar snap peas, snow peas and shiitake mushrooms.



  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 6 ounces watercress
  • 4 ounces snow peas
  • 6 ounces sugar snap peas
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms caps thinly sliced and stems removed
  • 4 Tablespoons cashews chopped
  • 1 2-inch piece ginger peeled and minced
  • 1/2 cup white miso paste


  1. Preheat oven to 475-degrees.

  2. In a small bowl, combine miso paste, ⅓ of the garlic, ⅓ of the ginger and 2 Tablespoons water; stir to thoroughly combine. Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper. Pat chicken breasts dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Place on sheet pan and spread miso mixture on the top. Cook 20-22 minutes, or until browned and cooked through to an internal temperature of 165-degrees.

  3. While chicken roasts, in a small pot, bring rice, a big pinch of salt and 1 1/4 cups water to a boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.

  4. Once chicken has roasted for 10 minutes, in a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, 3-5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are lightly browned. Add the remaining garlic and ginger and cook, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute, or until softened and fragrant.

  5. Add watercress, snow peas and sugar snap peas to mushrooms; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2-3 minutes, or until bright green.

  6. Divide cooked rice and finished vegetables between four plates. Top with a chicken breast. Garnish with cashews. Enjoy!
