Grilled Honey Teriyaki BBQ Chicken

I love a good chicken recipe. You just can’t go wrong with ’em can you?

I’ve made this grilled honey teriyaki BBQ  chicken 4 times in the last month. Once as baked wings for my niece’s graduation party, another time for dinner, another time to record me making it so that I could share with you guys and again because I forgot to take a final photo of the finished product!  My family hasn’t minded  the repeats at all.

This honey teriyaki bbq chicken taste great baked or grilled. The sauce is sooooo yummy! I couldn’t stop dipping into it. I’m anxious to try the sauce on some appetizer meatballs and kabobs. I bet that would be amazing!

Grilled Honey Teriyaki BBQ Chicken
  • 5 lb chicken, cut up
  • ½ tablespoon paprika
  • ½ tablespoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon seasoning salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup raw honey
  • ½-3/4 cup original bbq sauce (I use Sweet Baby Rays)
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • ⅛ cup soy sauce (sometimes I use more if I want it saltier)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup white onions, diced
  1. Lightly coat chicken in olive oil.
  2. Season chicken generously with season blend.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours (overnight is best)
  4. Prepare the honey teriyaki sauce by adding all sauce ingredients in a small pot.
  5. Stir to combine.
  6. Bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring.
  7. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat. Sauce will thicken as it cools. (it's taste better the next day, but still GREAT on the 1st day)
  9. Heat grill to medium heat.
  10. Place chicken on generously greased grill.
  11. Brush chicken with sauce. As sauce cooks onto the chicken keep brushing on more sauce. (about 20-25 minutes per side)
  12. Flip the chicken once and brush sauce on the other side of chicken, repeating multiple times as the sauce cooks onto the chicken.
  13. When chicken is done remove from grill.
  14. Let chicken rest for 5 minutes.
  15. Enjoy
~TIPS~ Take advantage of indirect grilling and move the chicken around if it starts to burn. Cooking times may vary. I cooked each side for 20-25 minutes. The sauce taste better the next day but still awesome the first day! Ya know what, even if you don't put that BBQ mixture on the chicken, it's still FAB!!! My toddler loves it just seasoned with the spices and grilled.

    GREAT video! I am so excited to make this tomorrow afternoon! Your enthusiasm is a breath of fresh air on the internet! Keep up the great work!

    I was worried because I didn’t quite have enough honey. (I was at the grocery store like “of course I have plenty of honey at home!”) Maybe just under an 1/8th cup short. The honey came through in the flavoring just fine and the sauce was great!! I also used Stubb’s Hickory Mesquite bbq sauce and 365 Teriyaki Sauce (which, by the way, is pretty awesome right out the bottle) I BBQ’d on our charcoal grill and just kept basting and basting. You’re right, even the charred parts tasted yummy! Thanks for another great recipe!

    Delish! I made this in the oven at 400 degrees, 20 minutes on each side and broiled for about 30 seconds. I think this is great for summer cookouts.

    I love how all your recipes are full of flavor. I tried this recipe last night and loved it. I cooked the chicken in the oven and it was delicious. I can’t wait to try another recipe !!

    • LMoore says

      What temperature did you cook it in the oven on and for how long? Did you take it out and turn over and baste each time? I’m trying this tomorrow in the oven. Thanks!
