Maple syrup pairs so well with chicken and this juicy, spicy, sticky, barbecued chicken is reminiscent of grilled teriyaki chicken with a maple twist! and it is so fast and easy! Perfect for football game tailgate or backyard barbeque.
Mix the chile pepper sauce, maple syrup, soy sauce, mayonnaise, and rice vinegar into garlic until marinade is thoroughly combined.
Transfer chicken thighs or breasts to a large flat container (such as a baking dish) and pour marinade over chicken; stir until chicken is coated. Seal or cover the dish with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate about 3 hours
Preheat the grill to high heat.(400 - 450 F)
Put chicken onto the hot grill with smooth sides down. Cook until the chicken shows grill marks, about 3 minutes. Turn chicken over and cook until other side shows grill marks, about 5 minutes. Continue to cook, moving them occasionally and turning over every 2 minutes, until meat is no longer pink inside and the thighs are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Using a meat thermometer, chicken should be 165 - 170 F
Transfer chicken to a platter, let rest for 5 minutes, and serve garnished with lime wedges.
