Firehouse BBQ Grilled Chicken

So, I had this recipe from Picky Palate for almost a month and have been waiting to try it. We finally got around to making it yesterday. It turned out so good.

Now, I use chicken tenders instead of breasts. I like them because they cook evenly and fast. I did put them in the marinate at noon and cooked them at 5:30. I think that was too long in this marinate, especially using tenders.

The chicken was so tender it was falling apart as it was being put on the grill. I think that 2 hours to marinate would have been perfect. I also only used half the amount of hot sauce. I was afraid the full amount would be too spicy for my family. I think the half amount was perfect and it would have been too spicy if I followed the recipe exactly.

I’m definitely going to try it again with the shorter amount of marinating time and add it to my tried and true file.

  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  1. Place all ingredients in a large ziplock bag and marinate for at least an hour. Preheat stove top grill pan or outdoor grill over medium heat.
  2. Grill chicken for 5-6 minutes each side or until chicken is cooked through.

  • can you do this in the oven?

  • This has become a family favorite! A request for every birthday!! Thank you so much for sharing!

  • I would rather just do this with a chipolta BBQ sauce, the franks didn’t make it spicy and using the butter just added calories! I do like the idea of putting my chicken in the BBQ sauce for awhile before I cook it

  • I made this last night for my family. They LOVED it. I did just 1/4 cup of the Frank's Hot Sauce like you suggested. It really was great.

  • great idea! my husband would love this! I think I’ll make it without the butter though. 🙂
