Ended up making the chicken, but had mashed sweet potatoes, TJ's stuffing, and cranberry sauce as sides. A random, quick, not quite Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving dinner.1 Helpful

Loved it! The panko miso-butter is soooo flavorful. Had the carrots and rice with it. Nice and easy meal!0 Helpful
Made this with cod instead of mushrooms. Yum! Not sure we needed the garbanzo beans in the veggie mix, but overall we can't go wrong with that naughty, tasty miso butter!0 Helpful
Carrots especially were a hit0 Helpful
