Rockin' Chicken Recipe: This Sweet & Spicy Maple Grilled Chicken Recipe Has Just 3 Ingredients

Grilling chicken that's been marinated is one of my favorite things. This marinade has just three ingredients but packs a big punch. And who doesn't love sweet and spicy?

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 1 hour to marinate
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes

Servings: 6 to 8


Here's how you make it:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a plastic zipper bag. Pop in the fridge and marinate at least 1 hour.
  2. When ready to cook, remove the chicken from the marinade. Cook over a moderately hot outside grill or inside on a hot grill pan until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Baste with the marinade a few times during cooking. Watch the chicken closely while you cook it. The sugar in the maple syrup can burn very easily.

Love my Bagwell! I like to marinate in plastic zipper bags, and it helps so much getting all the ingredients in the bag. No mess! Stacey Roberts

Sambal oelek is a thick chile paste. It's mostly red chiles and vinegar. You can find it on the Asian aisle near the soy and sriracha, etc. Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds You'll see it sometimes on the table at Vietnamese restaurants.
