Sake and Citrus–Poached Chicken with Miso Sauce

Sake and Citrus–Poached Chicken with Miso Sauce

The clean, delicate notes of sake and the brightness of citrus are ideal for chicken breasts. The chicken is finished with a simple sauce made from a small amount of the poaching liquid combined with umami-packed miso, a little oil for richness and citrus juice for bracing acidity. Savory-sweet furikake, a Japanese nori, sesame and bonito blend typically sprinkled on rice, is a delicious garnish for this dish, but toasted sesame seeds are excellent, too. Serve with rice and a lightly dressed slaw. It's important to use freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice in this recipe; the juiced halves are used in the poaching liquid.
