Recipe By:Eric
"Boneless chicken marinated in a miso (soy bean paste) sauce and grilled over an open fire. The miso is also mixed with beer, soy sauce, sugar, and sesame oil to give it a complex flavor."


  • 1 cup miso paste
  • 1 cup beer
  • 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


  1. In a large bowl, combine the miso paste, beer, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, and cayenne pepper. Stir until the miso and sugar are completely dissolved. Set aside 1/2 cup of the sauce for basting during grilling. Submerge the chicken in the remaining marinade, cover bowl, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and discard marinade. Grill chicken for 6 to 8 minutes per side, basting during the last few minutes with the reserved sauce. The chicken is done when it's juices run clear.
