How to Make Grilled Awesome Sauce Chicken
As I mentioned, the chicken is marinated in a combination of honey mustard, teriyaki sauce, and hot sauce. I used Sweet Baby Ray’s teriyaki sauce and Frank’s Hot Sauce. I let the chicken hang out overnight in the marinade before grilling. If you don’t have overnight, just let the chicken marinate as long as possible before cooking on the grill.
My number one tip for grilling chicken breasts is to pound the chicken to an even thickness. Pounding the chicken breasts allows the chicken to cook evenly. This will prevent you from having half-dry chicken and half-juicy chicken. Just place the chicken breasts in a gallon ziplock bag and use a flat meat mallet to pound out the thick end of the chicken. You can use the same bag to marinate the chicken.
How to Grill Chicken Without a Grill
If you don’t have a grill, you can still make this yummy chicken! My preferred indoor cooking method is a combination of pan searing and finishing off in the oven. Cook the chicken in a skillet over medium-high heat for about 3 or 4 minutes per side. Place the chicken on a baking sheet and bake at 425ºF for an additional 10 minutes. Check the chicken to make sure it has an internal temperature of 165ºF. You DO NOT want pink chicken!

We LOVED this Awesome Sauce Chicken. It is packed FULL of amazing flavor. The chicken is great with potatoes, rice, asparagus, green beans, corn. Leftovers are great chopped up on top of a salad or in a wrap. I usually double the recipe so we can eat leftovers during the week. I love having yummy chicken ready to eat in the fridge!
Here’s the recipe:

To cook inside – pan sear the chicken for 3 minutes on each side. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165ºF.
