Barbecue Glazed Chicken

Something about the beginning of spring drives me to want to grill. Growing up we grilled almost nightly from April-November. I love the smell of burgers, chicken, steak, hot dogs, or really anything you can throw on the grill! My favorite part of running outside this time of year is smelling everyone's dinner haha! I had been craving some BBQ chicken and decided it was time to finally make it. There is just something so satisfying about those grill lines, no?

This recipe is so simple that even a 5 year old could make it (except the grilling part- I don't encourage that!) It uses common ingredients and really makes a delicious sauce. I love the combination of the sweet from the honey, the salty from the soy sauce, and the tangy from the BBQ sauce. A really nice combination if I do say so myself! Give it a shot- you won't be disappointed.

1 pound of chicken tenders (or thin sliced breasts)
1/2 cup smoked BBQ sauce
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
Salt & Pepper

1- Combine the BBQ sauce, soy sauce, honey, and a few dashes of salt and pepper in a large gallon sized zipper bag. Shake the bag well, combining all ingredients.
2- Add the chicken.
3- Allow to marinade for a couple hours.
4- Grill until thoroughly cooked.

** 4 points for 3 ounces of chicken


  1. Looks yummy, I think I'll try this one but I'd prefer to use the thigh and leg part. For me, that part taste better. I also find chicken breast too dry when over cooked, even the slightest.

  2. I love cooking boneless, skinless chicken breasts on charcoal. I cook them just until they are done (if yours are too dry, try a meat thermometer), so the meat isn't dry. We are in the habit of cooking extra to use over a few days in salads, tossed with pasta or in quesadillas.

  3. I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now and decided to make this tonight for my guy and his brother. Both are pretty picky eaters, but will put BBQ sauce on almost anything so I figured it was worth a try. The verdict? They liked it! Yummy sounds all around :) Thanks for the great recipe, Stephanie!

  4. Just made this for dinner and it was delicious!
