Grilled Miso Chicken

Miso Chicken

We eat a lot of chicken in the summer, always cooked on the barbecue grill. Boneless breasts are a once or twice per week staple. A list of ingredients and simple recipes for homemade marinades is also a staple.


  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 2 tbs miso
  • 2 tbs sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 2 tbs olive oil


  • In small bowl whisk together miso, vinegar, ketchup, and oil.
  • Spoon marinade over chicken and let marinate for 10 – 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  • Cook on barbecue grill for 8 – 12 minutes per side or until done (test – take a peak)
  • Remove and let rest for a few minutes.
  • Slice and serve


Be careful not to overcook chicken breasts. They stay moist and tender if cooked to just a bit below ‘done’ (165F, 74C). They’ll finish cooking as they rest. If they are taken off at 160F (70C) and allowed to rest for a few minutes they will be safe to eat and delicious.
