  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 shiso leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sesame seeds for garnish
  • Sliced green onions for garnish


  1. Prepare the Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Marinate the Chicken: In a bowl, combine the minced garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and honey. Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  3. Cook the Chicken: Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade and discard the excess marinade. Grill the chicken for 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center.
  4. Add Shiso Flavor: During the last few minutes of cooking, sprinkle the finely chopped shiso leaves over the chicken breasts, allowing them to wilt slightly and infuse their flavor into the chicken.
  5. Serve: Remove the chicken from the grill and transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Serve hot with rice or your favorite side dishes.
