Summer is just around the corner and I cannot wait for grill season!

We grill all year long. Yet in the summer, grilling is our primary source of cooking. In fact, 4-6 nights a week our dinner comes off the grill.

I stash chicken, fish, and pork chops in the freezer through the warm months to thaw and throw on the grill at a moments notice.

There are so many ways to season protein, I never get tired of grilling.

Making Miso Honey Chicken Recipe | ASpicyPerspective.com

Today’s Miso Honey Chicken is a recent discovery I made while cleaning out the fridge. I had a tub of aromatic white miso paste in the back of the refrigerator with just a little left in the bottom.


I thought I’d try using it in a glaze for grilled chicken to free up room in the refrigerator.

White miso paste has such a lovely floral fragrance and salty note, I knew it would pair nicely with honey.

After whisking together a quick glaze of honey, miso paste, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper, I brushed it over chicken breasts and threw them on the grill.

The honey and miso created a fabulous crusty exterior with a salty-sweet caramelized flavor, that sealed in the juices of the chicken. Grilled perfect in my mind!

My impromptu Miso Honey Chicken was so good, I knew I had to share it with you right away so you can enjoy it all summer long.
