Orange Sriracha Grilled Chicken Recipe - chicken marinated in bbq sauce, mustard, Sriracha, honey, and orange juice. Sweet, smokey, and a tad bit spicy. SO good! Tons of great flavor and super juicy. We double the recipe for leftovers during the week.
Whisk together BBQ sauce, Sriracha, honey, mustard and orange juice. Pour over chicken and refrigerate a few hours up to overnight.
Remove chicken from marinade and grill for approximately 15 minutes, until done.
You can use this marinade on any cut of chicken – breasts, tenders, thighs, wings, or drumsticks/legs.
You can use boneless or bone-in chicken. Adjust the cooking time to ensure an internal temperature of 165ºF.
Is Orange Sriracha Chicken spicy? Even though this chicken has a 1/4 cup of Sriracha, we didn't think it was spicy. I might actually increase the Sriracha next time, but I like spicy food.
My favorite store-bought BBQ sauces are Sweet Baby Rays, Stubbs, G.Hughes, and Williamson Brothers.
I suggest pounding the chicken breast to an even thickness. We put the chicken in a ziplock bag and use a flat meat mallet to carefully pound out the hump. This ensures that the chicken cooks evenly and you don’t have juicy chicken and half-dry chicken.
You will want to marinate the chicken for at least an hour. We almost always let our chicken marinate overnight. I mix up the marinade before bed and let it hang out in the refrigerator until we are ready to grill.
I don’t have a grill. Can I cook the chicken in the oven or skillet? Yes! To cook the chicken breasts inside, pan-sear it for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes.
