Daytona Chicken

A couple of weeks ago, for the Super Bowl, we had Hooter's Daytona chicken wings.  I loved them!  I was completely shocked, because I usually HATE chicken wings.  The wings were crispy and the sauce was great - sweet heat.  I tried to find a recipe on-line for the Daytona wing sauce, but I had no luck.  We had to figure it out on our own! 

We started with a Honey BBQ Sauce and added Texas Pete until it tasted right.  It ended up being a 3 to 1 ratio of BBQ to Texas Pete.  I don't usually fry food, so we grilled some chicken breasts and it turned out  great.  I might change it up a little next time - Mesquite BBQ sauce, honey and Texas Pete.  We both wanted a little more mesquite flavor.  I guess if you had a nice, fancy grill, you could just use wood chips.  All in all, this was a great healthy makeover of my new guilty pleasure.

Mix together BBQ and hot sauce.  Set aside.  Pound chicken breast to an even thickness.  Season both sides with salt and pepper.  Grill chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side.  Baste with BBQ sauce until chicken is done.
