Detox Teriyaki Chicken 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. 1. To make the marinade, 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. 2. Marinate the chicken in the sauce (reserve a spoonful or two) for at least one hour–up to overnight. 3. Heat your grill to medium heat. 4. Wipe off any excess marinade and grill the chicken for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. 5. Serve with the reserved, hasn’t-touched-raw-chicken sauce, cilantro and scallions. makes 1
