Updated: Jul 9, 2019

Lord Honey, grilled chicken is a summer-time tradition, but just wait 'til you give it a good slatherin' with my sweet 'n spicy beer-moppin' sauce. Let me tell y'all, your guests will be askin' you to put that sauce in a mug.

Beer-Mopped Chicken

Jason Smith, FNS

Serves 6-8


8-boneless, skinless chicken breast


2-tsp onion powder

2-tsp black pepper

2-tsp smoked paprika

1-TBSP salt

2-TBSP olive oil

Juice from ½ lemon

½-cup dark stout beer


· In a large bowl that has a lid, mix the brine ingredients and place chicken in brine and toss to coat, put lid on bowl and let stand in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.

· Make mop sauce by stirring together all ingredients except the beer just until combined, then add the beer and stir, place in a container with lid and let set in fridge until ready to grill.

· Heat grill to medium high, Place chicken on grill and cook 3-5 mins , when chicken is flipped for the first time, start mopping with sauce.

· Turn grill to low and flip chicken 3-4 more times mopping in between each flip. You should only have chicken on grill for total of 20-25 mins, it all depends on the thickness of the chicken. You want to cook chicken until internal temp is 160.

· Take chicken off grill place on platter and tent with foil, let stand for 5 mins before serving.

Tip: This recipe works great with pork chops as well.
