Best BBQ chicken I've ever made.

Well, tonight was another family get together with my kids (all adults now) and I'd decided to cook up some chicken on the Webber charcoal grill. To make a long story short (not a word, BT!), I recently had the chance to taste Sriracha sauce. I found it to be wonderful. So I decided to use it on my chicken. I jsut want to say that the marinading sauce I created tonight was the best I've ever made, better than my fruity sauces, better than my bbq sauce, better than my sweet & sour, better than my teryaki, and they're all tried and proven.

So, I give you the recipe. Go ahead and try it. See what you think.

Marinade:
1/3 cup Sriracha Pepper Sauce
2 tbs. Tobasco Pepper Sauce
1 tbs. Kikoman Soy Sauce
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. chili powder

Combine in a small bowl and set aside.

Place eight skinless chicken thighs in a zipper bag and pour in the marinating sauce. Press all air out and close the zipper. Move the chicken around inside to completey coat it with the sauce. Place in the fridge and let set for 2 hours.

Fire up the grill with a solid bed of coals. Place chicken down and cover. Set all vents to the half open position. Cook for 5 minutes per side, with the lid on. Test for doneness with a meat thermometer. Continue cooking until the thermometer reads 160' F.

I also made kabobs our of caulliflower, partially cooked button mushrooms, red, yellow, and orange sweet pepper chunks, pineapple, and asparagus spears, each on their own 2-pole bamboo skewers.

All I can say is that when the veggie skewers are cooked until they reach that soft crunch stage, and served up with the thighs, well, I could eat that meal twice a week for a year. It came out sooooo good.

Sometimes the experiments just work. Sometimes they don't. This time, the sauce was exeptional as a marinade. And since there is no sugar in the sauce, it doesn't burn easily.

I'd like to be able to submit and cook this for judges in a cooking contest. I think it would do very well.

Enjoy. We sure did.

I haven't had BBQ chicken for a while. I may try this tonight after I pick up some more soy sauce. My 20 year old bottle is almost empty.
Of course the skin will stay on! that's the best part

Wow, are you saying that a bottle of soy sauce lasts you twenty years? I find that amazing. Really shows how different people's cooking style can be. I've switched a lot of what I used to use soy sauce for to fish sauce and I'd guess that I still go through a quart bottle of soy in about two years.

hehe.... I use my bottle of soy up in a month or so!
I use it mixed with Italian dressing to marinate my grilled chicken.

Sounds great GW I will have to try our "grown up" pieces with the Sriracha. Not thinking the kiddos will care for it, but what do they know? :)

It sure did Russell. I've said before in other threads, it's so old it didn't even have an exp date on it, so it must still be good I got it way back when when I ordered one of those "hand hammered" woks from TV. Did a little stir fry and there ya have it. I only use it to season sauteed shrooms and onions once in a while, when I'm in the mood, because I like them sauteed as is, too.

Any reccomendations for this recipe? One that works well with everythig? There's probaby as many kinds of soy sauce out there now as types of vinegar.

I find that Tabasco Sauce is hot for my tongue, but not so that i can't handle it straight. But it will give slight pain. That pretty much describes my hot-stuff pain threshold.

Sriracha Sauce gives me a warm glow. The mixture I gave in my recipe did not get any "Holy Cow! This stuff is hot!" from any of the people eating the chicken last night. Everyone described the heat level as very comfortable, but fun, adding just the right kick to enhance the flavor. Myself, I felt the same way. It wasn't hot as there is about 1/4 cup of wter added to create enough liquid in the marinade. And the chicken only rests in it for about 2 hours.

This recipe is safe if you tolerate any kind of salsa, or hot sauce. And it tastes great.
