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.

This is such a great recipe! I've made it with various kinds of citrus--whatever I have on hand. Used grapefruit last night, which was delicious. Makes great chicken salad the next day.
