Sticky Chicken

Sticky chicken has been my boyfriends favorite ever since the first time he tried it. If you have ever had Walmart’s deli BBQ boneless chicken it is pretty comparable to that. I must argue that this recipe is much better than Walmart’s… (hehe.) This recipe takes frozen chicken to a whole new level.

1 pkg. frozen chicken tenders or popcorn chicken  
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
5 tbs. hot sauce (I used Franks)
3 tbs. BBQ sauce ( I used Sweet Baby Rays)
3 tbs. water
Directions (Chicken)
Cook chicken according to directions on package. Once chicken has cooked fully put it in a container that has a lid.
Directions (Sauce)
For the sauce combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil on medium heat stirring continuously. Once the sugar has dissolved pour the sauce over the chicken. Put on the containers lid and shake until sauce has evenly covered all chicken. Enjoy!
*Note: If you like your chicken spicier try using frozen spicy chicken tenders or popcorn chicken.

    I love Sticky Chicken, but do not make it often because, with only two of us, a whole chicken mostly remains uneaten. It never occurred to me to use chicken pieces and prepared stickies. I am going to try it. Thanks for both the recipe and the incentive to make a favorite food more often.

    This recipe is amazing. The only thing I did different was to use sriracha sauce instead of Franks for a little extra kick.

    I don’t care for spicy food so if I removed the hot sauce would I need to up the water or will it matter?

      I wouldn’t use 5 tbs. of water if you were going to replace hot sauce with water. Try using an additional 2 tbs. bbq sauce and 3 tbs. water. Enjoy 🙂

    I love sweet and sour substituted for the BBQ sauce. I did add several shots of hot sauce to spice it up more for my taste. Thanks for an easy recipe that lends itself to many variations. Hmm! Maybe some pineapple next time.

    If you like the orange chicken that some places offer, replace the BBQ sauce with orange juice….very tasty!! Serve with white or fried rice. Great meal!
