In a small bowl, mix miso, garlic, ginger and rice wine vinegar.  Rub mixture on both sides of the chicken breasts.  Sprinkle with black pepper.  Place a large piece of parchment paper or heavy duty foil (or oven bag) on a cookie sheet.  Arrange the chicken on the paper.  Fold and crimp the edges of the paper together to enclose the chicken, take care to keep the chicken in a single layer.    Bake in a 350 F oven for 25-30 minutes.  Remove from oven and keep warm.  

Sauté onion in olive oil for 2-3 minutes in a large skillet or wok. Add the cooking liquid from the chicken, the fish sauce and soy sauce, and additional chicken broth as needed.  Stir fry the carrots, mushrooms and kale in the liquid for about 5 minutes.  Add the cooked rice and mix well. Mound the rice-vegetable mixture on a large platter and arrange the chicken on top. Serve & enjoy!
