Barbeque Miso Chicken


Quantity Ingredients
1 cup miso paste
1 cup beer
1 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 cup white sugar
2 tsp sesame oil
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
2 1/2 lbs 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. 2. Submerge the chicken in the remaining marinade, cover bowl, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 3. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grill grate. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and discard marinade. Grill chicken for 6 to 8 minutes per side, until the juices run clear, basting during the last few minutes with the reserved sauce. Serves: 6
