White Miso Chicken with Pineapple Coconut Rice

February 10, 2014

Author Notes: I love miso!!!! So anytime I can add a spoonful I'm happy but this chicken is soooo flavorful you will get hooked too! I used to make this with chicken breast which is just as good but there is something about thighs that gives this dish the feel of the best Chinese take out! Only quick and easy at home. This chicken is also great as a satay on the grill for an appetizer. I love to serve it with steamed broccoli or fresh snap peas from my garden! I always have leftover rice and try to find new things to do with it. This is one of my favorite ways to use it up! And if you have extra rice it makes the best breakfast!! I almost love the cold leftovers better then the dinner;)))Danielle
