Mirin is an essential ingredient in Japanese cuisine. It's a rice wine similar to sake, but with a lower alcohol content and distinctive sweetness that develops naturally during the fermentation process. We use it as the backbone of an umami-packed glaze on a tender chicken breast. It's fortified with miso, strawberry preserves, and ginger for a flavor combination that can't be touched. Served alongside charred baby bok choy slaw, this is low carb and low cal eating at its finest.

    Return pan used to sear bok choy to medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan and cook 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. While chicken cooks, add strawberry preserves, mirin, ginger, miso, and ⅓ cup water to a small bowl and stir to combine. Add to pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a strong simmer and cook 3-4 minutes, flipping chicken occasionally, until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165. Transfer chicken to a plate and let rest 5 minutes.
