We love grilling chicken so I’m always on the hunt for great recipes. This one is fantastic- the sauce is flavorful with a bit of a kick and I love how easy it is to make. We served it with grilled pineapple and asparagus and a side of steamed rice. Anyone want to come over for dinner?!

I use fresh, all-natural chicken I purchased from Zaycon Fresh. I love their high quality meats- especially that I can get them at a discount! Right now their boneless, skinless chicken is priced at just $1.69/lb! See if their delicious chicken, as well as their other amazing products are offered in your area here. You can also check out how Zaycon offers such low prices on high quality foods here.

Sweet & Spicy Grilled Sticky Chicken

  • 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 TBSP Frank’s hot sauce (any variety)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  1. Cut chicken into 6-8 smaller pieces (it grills faster and you can coat more sauce on the chicken when it’s in smaller pieces.) Place chicken in an airtight container and set aside.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients (except for the cornstarch!) in a 2-cup measuring cup and whisk until smooth. Microwave for 3 minutes. Sauce will boil and reduce slightly. Pour half into the container with the chicken. Let marinate for 2-4 hours.
  3. Take 2 TBSP of sauce from the measuring cup and combine with the cornstarch in a small bowl. Stir until smooth, then whisk back into the measuring cup with remaining sauce. Microwave an additional 2 minutes. Set aside until it’s time to grill.
  4. Grill chicken over medium heat, coating sauce on each side as you cook. Chicken will be done with the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. I reserved a small amount of sauce to brush on right after it was taken off the grill to give it a nice glazed look.
  5. If you grill pineapple, only brush a small amount of sauce on as it’s fairly strong. You don’t want to overpower the taste of the pineapple.

Enjoy!

  1. This caught my attention right away. I am always up for another chicken recipe! I don't know about the hot sauce, I like things tangy but not hot, but I am sure I could adjust it. I have pinned this to my Chicken board and will share it over at G+ and FB. I hope you will stop by on Sunday and share this at my very first link party at Celebrate and Decorate! Hugs! Chloe
    • So glad you like it! Try it first with half the amount of sauce- I bet you'll like it. ;) I'll be sure to stop by and link up!!
