Grilled miso chicken

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce (usukuchi shoyu)
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons light miso
  • 2 green onions, crushed and slivered
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger root
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 8 boned chicken thighs, skin intact
  • 1 tablespoon seven-spice powder (optional)

Preparation/cooking time: 1 1/2 hours

Servings: 4

Miso marinade adds a rich flavor to this country-style grilled chicken. Thigh meat stays moist and tender, but boned chicken breasts are delicious, too. The chicken can be sauteed in a skillet.

Directions

Blend soy sauce, sake mirin, miso, green onions, ginger root and garlic in a rectangular baking dish. Coat chicken with mixture. Marinate 1 hour or refrigerate overnight, turning several times.

Preheat a hibichi, portable tabletop grill or charcoal grill. Shake marinade off chicken; pat dry. Place skin-down on hot grill. Grill 4 to 5 minutes. Turn chicken; grill second side 4 to 5 minutes or until golden brown and done inside. When chicken is done, sprinkle with sesame seeds and spice mixture.
