Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, mirin, sake, brown sugar, honey, minced garlic, and grated ginger to make the marinade.

  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off.
  5. Brush the grill grates with vegetable oil to prevent sticking.

  7. While grilling, brush the chicken with the remaining marinade every few minutes for extra flavor.
  8. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
  9. Slice the chicken breasts and serve with steamed rice and a side of Japanese BBQ sauce for dipping.
