Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 4 Pound chicken cut into 10 pieces, patted dry with paper towels

Glaze

  • 4 tablespoon (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange Juice
  • 1/4 cup Neely's BBQ sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice

Preparation

Step 1:

  • Mix the orange juice, olive oil, hot sauce, mustard, and orange zest together in a large bowl. Add the chicken and toss to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate for at least 1 hour and up to overnight in the refrigerator.

Step 2:

  • Prepare the grill to medium direct heat. Let chicken come to room temperature before grilling.

Step 3:

  • Drain the chicken from the marinade and pat dry. Grill on each side for 5 minutes, then turn the heat to medium-low and cover the lid of the grill. Continue cooking the chicken until it's cooked through, about 25 minutes more.

Step 4:

  • While the chicken is grilling, melt the butter in a small saucepan on the grill. Whisk in the honey, orange juice, BBQ sauce, zest, mustard and allspice. Reserve some of the glaze in a small ramekin for serving.

Step 5:

  • Brush the chicken pieces with glaze, then flip the chicken, glaze side down, and cook for 2 minutes. Brush second side of the chicken with glaze and flip again. Continue cooking for 3 more minutes. Remove the chicken from grill to a platter and serve with reserved glaze.
