Food Friday - Honey BBQ Glazed Chicken

Honey BBQ Glazed Chicken
adapted from Zagleft

A few weeks ago I tried a chicken recipe from The Recipe Crayon Box for "the perfect chicken" that was, quite honestly, very good.  When I made it I thought that it would be perfect for chicken salad or any other recipe that called for precooked chicken.  Then I tried THIS recipe and now have a new "perfect chicken".  This recipe actually makes me want to eat chicken.  every night.  It was perfectly tasty and, being grilled?  Well that makes it even better!  As a side note - I did NOT use Sriracha Sauce.  I didn't want to buy a bottle of something I may never use and, since the kids eat the chicken, I try to avoid anything "hot" - plus that is not a favorite flavor of my husbands either. 

  • 4-5 chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup stone ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and marinate the chicken for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat the grill and grill the chicken for 7-8 minutes per side or until no longer pink.
  4. Remove from the grill and serve.
