Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced (for garnish)


  1. In a bowl, whisk together miso paste, soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, minced garlic, grated ginger, sesame oil, and vegetable oil.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the miso marinade over them. Seal the bag and massage the marinade into the chicken, ensuring it is evenly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or overnight for maximum flavor.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off. Discard the remaining marinade.
  5. Grill the chicken for about 8-10 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). The chicken should be nicely charred and cooked through.
  6. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.
  7. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions and serve hot.
