It's grilling time! Do you love warmer weather and grilling your meals outside like we do? It is so fun to try grilling different meats and veggies on the grill. This Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken is just that-sweet and spicy. The brown sugar gives this grilled chicken a bit of sweetness and the sriracha and red pepper flakes gives it the spice. It is an easy marinade, with only eight ingredients (plus you will need the chicken breasts-so nine ingredients for the recipe). It is easy to adjust to your liking. Some people like more spice, so you can add a little more sriracha and red pepper flakes, if desired. Check out some of our other chicken recipes.
