Ingredients

FOR THE MARINADE & SAUCE

  • 1/2 cup sriracha
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

FOR THE CHICKEN

  • 4 large chicken breasts this recipe can marinate more if needed
  • Olive oil as needed

Instructions

  1. Whisk all of the marinade ingredients together until well combined. Reserve half of the marinade to use later for basting and serving.
  2. Marinate your chicken in a baggie or large bowl, sealed, at least 8 hours in the refrigerator, or overnight for even more flavor. If time is a factor, you can marinate for 30 minutes to get some additional flavor.

COOKING THE CHICKEN

  1. Heat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates.
  2. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade. Grill the chicken 5 minutes per side to get a nice sear.
  3. Baste on a few spoonsful of the reserved honey-sriracha sauce and continue to grill until you reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F when measured with a meat thermometer. I like to baste a few times while cooking.
  4. Remove from heat and let rest a couple minutes.
  5. Serve with the remaining reserved honey-sriracha sauce.

Recipe Notes

Heat Factor: Mild-Medium, but you'll get plenty of sweet zing from the honey-sriracha marinade and finishing sauce. For more pronounced heat, try adding spicier chili powder or flakes to the marinade/sauce.
