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. I added orange juice concentrate, and lime juice And a bit of soy sauce because my teriyaki sauce was really thick. Made my own honey mustard because I didn’t have bottled sauce.
    Chicken was juicy and delicious! Great grilled! Excellent alternative to the usual marinades.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. In the text of the article, it’s suggested cooking in the oven @425* after searing but in the recipe portion, it says oven temp is 400*. Which is correct?

  3. This was a huge hit last night in our house. The littles liked it which was a huge plus. We will be making it again for sure.

  4. If making this in the crock pot, would it fall apart? Marinating now, but the hubby is super funny about grilling, he won’t let me touch it when he’s home! LOL
    And by the way I ALWAYS love your recipes! I’m so excited for this one!

    1. It might fall apart. You can cook it for 3 hours and check to see if it is done. Carefully lift it out of the crockpot and it won’t fall apart.
