Miso, that salty, earthy soybean paste of many soups at your local sushi joint marries with ponzu, a citrusy soy-like sauce also from Japan. Together, they blend for a sauce that augments tender chicken with pure joy, a culinary revelation that you'll be awed came out of your kitchen. (You can use it for your vegetables, too… it's that versatile and delicious!)
