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 400ºF for an additional 10 minutes. Check the chicken to make sure it has an internal temperature of 165ºF. You DO NOT want pink chicken!

  1. Awesome Sauce is the perfect name for this recipe. Delicious and so easy. I bought the exact sauce ingredients pictured. Wouldn’t change a thing. I cooked in a skillet on the stove. The chicken was very moist and tender. Putting in my keepers file.

  2. It was awesome! Used bone in, skin on chicken thighs in air fryer. Thought I remembered ingredients but didn’t..I marinated in mixture of sweet baby Ray bbq sauce, honey mustard & teriyaki sauce..then looked it up. Made more with the 3 correct ingredients plus the BBQ sauce. Glazed tops of chicken last few minutes. Wow! Awesome! Can’t wait for better weather to try on the grill. Thanks!

  3. OMG! This sauce is so good! This sauce was amazing on chicken sandwiches. I am going to try it on beef and pork next. Yum!!!!!

  4. I don’t want to buy teriyaki sauce because we usually don’t like it store bought… I’m wondering if I could sub the sauce from your (Plain Chicken) Teriyaki Chicken recipe? (That sauce is so good!) Hmm…

  5. Loved it! I will say I did not expect to like this as I do not like anything hot and I don’t like mustard but I have to say this was a great dip for chicken. Not overly hot and the taste of mustard is overrode by the other ingredients and was very tasty. I did not note any benefit to marinating the chicken in the sauce as I did not note the flavor in the chicken but it was a great dip for the grilled chicken.
