Gwyneth Paltrow's detox chicken teriyaki
This sauce is detox-friendly because it doesn’t use sugar or soy, but it has a great depth of flavor and is the perfect consistency. It's a great alternative to traditional teriyaki sauces, which are laden with sugar and salt.
Detox Chicken Teriyaki
* 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
* 1/3 cup agave syrup
* 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
* 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 teaspoon barley miso
* 1 teaspoon mirin
* 1 tablespoon water
Combine the balsamic, agave, ginger and pepper in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and cook for ten minutes. Cool and then add the miso, mirin and water.
* 1 chicken breast
* Detox Teriyaki Sauce
* 1 finely chopped scallion
* 4 sprigs cilantro, roughly chopped
Marinate the chicken in the sauce (reserve a spoonful or two) for at least one hour–up to overnight.
Heat your grill to medium heat. Wipe off any excess marinade and grill the chicken for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Serve with the reserved, hasn’t-touched-raw-chicken sauce, cilantro and scallions.
