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 tastes 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!


Watch me make this grilled honey teriyaki bbq chicken from start to finish!

  • 5 lb chicken, cut up
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup raw honey
  • 1/2-3/4 cup original bbq sauce, I use Sweet Baby Rays
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce, sometimes I use more if I want it saltier
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup white onions, diced


  • Lightly coat chicken in olive oil.
  • Season chicken generously with the seasoning blend.
  • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours (overnight is best)
  • Prepare the honey teriyaki sauce by adding all sauce ingredients to a small pot.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. The sauce will thicken as it cools. (it's taste better the next day, but still GREAT on the 1st day)
  • Heat grill to medium heat.
  • Place chicken on a generously greased grill.
  • Brush chicken with sauce. As the sauce cooks onto the chicken keep brushing on more sauce. (about 20-25 minutes per side)
  • Flip the chicken once and brush sauce on the other side of the chicken, repeating multiple times as the sauce cooks onto the chicken.
  • When chicken is done remove from grill.
  • Let chicken rest for 5 minutes.
  • Enjoy


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 tastes 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.
