Monday's Leftovers: Miso Chicken With Brown Rice

Monday's Leftovers: Miso Chicken With Brown Rice

I was browsing trying to figure out what to do with leftover Asian style grilled chicken, when I found this tasty looking recipe. Chicken is coated with a fragrant miso, ginger, and garlic sauce before being tossed with brown rice and fresh vegetables. This recipe is incredibly adaptable so alter it to suit your liking. Green beans, bell peppers, and bean sprouts would be wonderful additions to this delicious rice dish. To look at the recipe,
