A note about serious food allergies

Capturing Southeast Asian flavors is a balancing act of hot, sour, salt, and sweet combinations. This juicy chicken breast is a great example of hitting all those tasty notes with soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, and a Korean pepper paste known as gochujang. Like well-behaved preschoolers, these flavors play beautifully together in the sandbox that is this meal. Enjoyed next to whole grain brown rice, we've packed in a ton of flavor without packing in the calories.
