The only one phrase I can remember is "一朝一夕:Itchou Isseki;(within) One day" where "夕" is pronounced as "SEKI".
As you already know, there are KUN-read and ON-read and they are often mixed in use. ON-read is original Chinese pronounce at the moment of KANJIs imported when "呉:GO" dominated China. KUN-read is actually Japanese words corresponding the meaning of the KANJI.
As time goes, KANJIs are used in Japanese language and often mixed words are made for convenience. They are called as "重箱読み:JU-BAKO-YOMI;ON-KUN mixed" and "湯桶読み:YU-TOU-YOMI;KUN-ON mixed".
