4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1/4 cup sauce)

Miso adds a yeasty note to traditional chicken piccata in this recipe that's quick to make. Serve with orzo or rice to soak up the sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 1/4 cup broth and miso, stirring well with a whisk until miso dissolves. Stir in 1/2 cup broth. Set aside.

Step 2

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Place flour in a shallow dish; dredge chicken in flour.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from pan. Add wine to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium; stir in miso mixture and garlic. Return chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes or until done. Remove from heat; stir in juice, capers, and pepper. Serve immediately.

Planning on skipping the salt next time. Capers are a must, they bring flavors together. Would have liked more sauce.

This was very good and so quick to prepare. I also used cutlets and a bit more garlic. The reason I gave this 4 stars vs. 5 is that both my mother and I felt that there was something missing in the recipe, but we couldn't quite figure out what it was. Hmmm...

This was terrific! You don't taste the miso but it adds a richer layer of velvety flavor. I used the zest as well as the juice from two lemons. As suggested by another reviewer, I served it with the mushroom orzo which soaked up the delicious sauce. Thanks for the tip! I'll definitely serve this for company.

This was outstanding. The only thing that I did differently was use some leftover sake instead of white wine & I used turkey breast cutlets. I will definately be making this again!

Plenty of sauce with this chicken. I thought at first the lemon taste was overpowering but after a few bites, I realized it was perfect as is. I served it with the Easy Mushroom Orzo which is AWESOME with it. The flavors work great together! It was an easy week night meal but I would serve to company.
