From the Test Kitchen

In this dish, we’re serving miso-coated, roasted chicken with fresh shiitake mushrooms and three types of seasonal peas—all atop a bed of jasmine rice. Originally grown for Thai royalty, jasmine rice fills the kitchen with its delightful, almost floral fragrance. With delicately sweet and fluffy grains, this variety of rice gives a lift to any recipe, rounding out the Japanese flavors in ours.
