    From the Test Kitchen

    A rich, complex pan sauce of miso paste, vinegar, honey and more gets finished in the reserved fond of our seared chicken breasts before being spooned over the chicken to serve. A hearty side of spicy, sesame roasted cauliflower and potatoes round out this meal.

    Miso Butter Chicken with Spicy Sesame Roasted Vegetables
    Title
    • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
    • 1 Tbsp Sweet White Miso Paste
    • 2 Tbsps Sesame Oil
    • 1 oz Salted Butter
    • 2 Tbsps Soy Sauce
    • 1 tsp Black & White Sesame Seeds
    • 1¼ lbs Potatoes
    • 1 head Romanesco Cauliflower
    • 2 Tbsps Rice Vinegar
    • 2 Scallions
    • 1 Tbsp Gochujang
    • 2 tsps Honey
    Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cauliflower; cut into small florets. Medium dice the potatoes. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Add the cauliflower florets and diced potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Toss to thoroughly coat. In a separate bowl, whisk together the miso paste, vinegar, honey, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and 1/2 cup of water.

    Roast the vegetables
    2 Roast the vegetables

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the seasoned vegetables on the foil; drizzle with olive oil and arrange in an even layer. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    3 Cook the chicken

    Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.

    Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) to the pan of reserved fond. Cook on medium- high, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the butter until melted and combined. Slice the cooked chicken crosswise. Serve the sliced chicken with the roasted vegetables. Top the chicken with the finished sauce. Garnish with the sesame seeds and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
