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

  • Whisk all of the marinade ingredients together until well combined. Reserve half of the marinade to use later for basting and serving.
  • 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

  • Heat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates.
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade. Grill the chicken 5 minutes per side to get a nice sear.
  • 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.
  • Remove from heat and let rest a couple minutes.
  • Serve with the remaining reserved honey-sriracha sauce.

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.
