spicy miso grilled chicken

Spicy miso grilled chicken mixes Japanese and Korean flavour for great tasting grilling. If you don't have gochujang, you can just mix in another chili sauce. Sambal oelek or even Sriracha would work here. The chicken is delicious hot or cold.

  • 2 Tbsp shiro miso
  • 2 Tbsp gochujang
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp sake
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic ginger paste - or a 1/2 tsp garlic and 1/2 tsp ginger, finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 12 boneless skin-on chicken thighs


  • Combine all the ingredients except the chicken and mix thoroughly.
  • Toss the chicken in the marinade and refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.
  • Set your grill up for indirect, medium high heat.
  • Place a drip pan under the grill where you will be putting the chicken.
  • Grill until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 175F, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Working in batches of 2 or 3 pieces, place the chicken over direct heat to colour up.


If you don't have gochujang, you can use a different chili paste. Use 4 Tbsp shiro miso and add chili paste to taste.
