Fire up the grill ASAP for this yummy Spicy BBQ Ranch Grilled Chicken! Chicken marinated in BBQ sauce, Ranch dressing, chili powder and red pepper flakes. Seriously delicious!! Like most of our chicken marinades, you can marinate this for as little as an hour or up to overnight. We almost always marinate our chicken overnight. It is just easier to prep for our meals at night before we go to bed.
Even though the name of this recipe is Spicy BBQ Ranch Grilled Chicken, the chicken isn’t very spicy. You can control the heat by adjusting the amount of red pepper flakes in the marinade. We used a tablespoon of red pepper flakes and it wasn’t super spicy. You just get a hint of heat since the chicken is just marinated in the mixture and not brushed with any red pepper flakes.
We’ve eaten this Spicy BBQ Ranch Grilled Chicken several times over the past few weeks and just love it. We always grill extra chicken for leftovers. It is great chopped up on top of a salad or in a wrap. I love to make a wrap with chopped chicken, cheese, bacon, mushrooms and BBQ sauce. SO good!!

This chicken was phenomenal! I’m enjoying trying out all your marinades!
If this is half as good as the greek ranch grilled chicken from last week, I can't wait. That one was a huge hit. This one is going on the menu.
No joke, we would starve without your blog, Stephanie! 🙂
