Easy Grilled Chicken

This Awesome Sauce Chicken is crazy good! We ate this for lunch and dinner on the same day! YUM! It is super easy to make and tastes AWESOME!😉

The inspiration for this marinade came from one of our favorite sports bars. They had a sandwich on the menu that came with this sauce. I absolutely loved the sauce. I had to know what it was made of. The waitress asked the cook and he said honey mustard, hot sauce, and teriyaki sauce. Easy enough! I whipped up the sauce at home and it was perfect. I thought the flavors would work well on chicken, so I decided to test it out. Guess what? It worked! A little sweet from the teriyaki and honey mustard and a little spicy from the hot sauce. We absolutely loved this chicken!!

How to Make Grilled Awesome Sauce Chicken

As I mentioned, the chicken is marinated in a combination of honey mustard, teriyaki sauce, and hot sauce. I used Sweet Baby Ray's teriyaki sauce and Frank's Hot Sauce. I let the chicken hang out overnight in the marinade before grilling. If you don't have overnight, just let the chicken marinate as long as possible before cooking on the grill.

My number one tip for grilling chicken breasts is to pound the chicken to an even thickness. Pounding the chicken breasts allows the chicken to cook evenly. This will prevent you from having half-dry chicken and half-juicy chicken. Just place the chicken breasts in a gallon ziplock bag and use a flat meat mallet to pound out the thick end of the chicken. You can use the same bag to marinate the chicken.

How to Grill Chicken Without a Grill

If you don't have a grill, you can still make this yummy chicken! My preferred indoor cooking method is a combination of pan searing and finishing off in the oven. Cook the chicken in a skillet over medium-high heat for about 3 or 4 minutes per side. Place the chicken on a baking sheet and bake at 425ºF for an additional 10 minutes. Check the chicken to make sure it has an internal temperature of 165ºF. You DO NOT want pink chicken!

We LOVED this Awesome Sauce Chicken. It is packed FULL of amazing flavor. The chicken is great with potatoes, rice, asparagus, green beans, corn. Leftovers are great chopped up on top of a salad or in a wrap. I usually double the recipe so we can eat leftovers during the week. I love having yummy chicken ready to eat in the fridge!

  1. I love your recipes but I am having a real challenge getting the recipes to print with just the recipe.. This issue has only began recently. When I clicked on Print Recipe, it wants to print the whole 8 pages. I managed to copy and paste only the recipe and print it from my mail program. Have you changed something or is it just me?

    1. I just clicked the red Print Recipe at the top of the recipe card and it printed one page.

  2. In the picture it shows Frank's Buffalo Wings Sauce, but in the recipe it says Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Did you use the original hot sauce or the buffalo wing sauce? Thanks! This looks amazing and cannot wait to try it!

  3. I have a question! Would this also work with shredded rotisserie chicken - if it summers in the sauce awhile like a pulled chicken sandwich filling? Or is it more flavorful grilled?

    1. Absolutely! That sounds delicious. I'm going to try it this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Do you make extra sauce for dipping the chicken in once it's cooked, or do you eat it just as is without any dipping sauce?

    1. We ate it as it, but it would be great with extra sauce.

  5. Has anyone tried recipe using bone in chicken breast and which do you prefer hot sauce or wing sauce please. Thank you!!

    1. You can use this on any cut of chicken. You will just need to adjust the cooking time accordingly. Make sure the internal temperature is 165ºF.
      I used Frank's Hot Sauce and Frank's Wing Sauce.

  6. If using bone in chicken breast do you remove the skin before marinating and grilled?

  7. How about using bone in chicken thighs and would the cooking time change.

    1. Any cut of chicken will work fine. Chicken on the bone takes longer to cook. Check for an internal 165 degrees when cooking.

  8. Could this be used on pork chops or a pork butt roast? What do you think?
