  1. To prepare chicken, whisk together 2 tablespoons of BRIANNAS Saucy Ginger Mandarin Dressing (reserve remainder for later use) with miso, mirin, sake and soy sauce until well blended.
  2. Place chicken and miso mixture into a large zip-top plastic storage bag; place in refrigerator and let marinate for several hours or overnight.
  3. Combine watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumber, remaining dressing, mint, salt and pepper, tossing gently to blend. Cover and chill (may be made up to 2 hours ahead).
  4. Line a shallow rimmed baking sheet with foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray, then reserve. Preheat oven broiler.
  5. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Broil chicken about 6 inches from heat source for about 12 minutes, or until lightly browned and done, turning chicken halfway through.
  6. Chicken should be tender when pierced with a knife and juices should run clear. Transfer to 4 serving plates along with the prepared relish. Garnish with additional fresh mint, if desired.
  7. Makes 4 servings.
  8. Janice Elder from Charlotte, NC made this delicious dish. She commented, “Being a fan of Asian foods (this likely explains why my favorite BRIANNAS dressing is the Saucy Ginger Mandarin), I loved using your fine product in my chicken dish in a two-fold fashion, as part of the miso-laced marinade and as a dressing for the melon relish. While the marinated chicken is quickly broiling, the relish can be put together – colorful and delicious!”
