MISO LIME CHICKEN

Chicken can get a tad boring sometimes, so I try to spark things up here with a tasty zing from the miso and fresh lime juice. This seriously simple and tasty sauce works well with fish or tofu as well!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes
Course Main Course
Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound chicken tenders or chicken thighs skinless, boneless

For the rub:

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

For the sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice about the juice from one lime
  • 2 Tablespoons white miso paste
  • 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt plain
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Fresh cilantro or basil for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the rub by placing the onion powder, garlic powder and pepper in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Place chicken tenders in a medium bowl. Pour rub evenly on top and mix well with clean hands; be sure the rub is evenly spread onto the chicken.
  • Mix up the sauce: Place the lime juice, miso paste, yogurt and honey in a small bowl. Mix well until miso is dissolved and set aside.
  • Place a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Add the chicken in a single layer. Cook 4–5 minutes, spray again with nonstick cooking spray, and flip to cook another 3–4 minutes on the other side. Remove from pan and place onto serving platter.
  • Top with sauce and garnish, and keep some extra sauce on the side!

Notes

Looking for a quick veggie on the side? Go for fresh golden beets! Peel, slice, mix with a touch of olive oil, dash of salt, freshly ground pepper. Microwave for a few minutes, then roast for 15–20 minutes at 400˚F. Garnish with fresh sage. Share the sauce here, too!
