  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Combine miso paste, honey, and sesame oil in a small mixing bowl. Set aside. Core and cut pear into 1/4” dice. Hold romaine head at root end and chop coarsely. Stem and coarsely chop basil. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. On a separate cutting board, slice each chicken breast lengthwise into thirds, then halve each piece to create 12 long strips.

  2. 2

    Make the Dressing

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together seasoned rice vinegar, lemongrass, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and basil (reserve a pinch for garnish). Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  3. 3

    Assemble the Skewers

    Thread two chicken pieces onto each skewer and set aside on a plate. Season both sides with 1/2 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  4. 4

    Cook the Skewers

    Heat outdoor grill or grill pan over medium heat. Coat grill pan with cooking spray. Add chicken skewers to hot grill and cook until well-charred and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side. Brush each cooked skewer with miso-honey mixture.

  5. 5

    Toss the Salad
