Grilled Hot Chicken Sandwich

Use Kingsford® charcoal to make our spicy grilled chicken thigh sandwich recipe. With a cook time of 30 minutes or less, our grilled hot chicken sandwich is a win for everyone!

Let's get grilling

1

Create a brine for the chicken the night before for moist results. Boil 2 cups of water and seasonings (cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, jalapeño). Add 8 cups of additional water and boneless chicken thighs. Brine overnight.

2

Light grill and set temperature to 375°F. On a Gravity Series grill, it should take only around 12 minutes to reach temperature.

3

Remove chicken thighs from the brine and pat dry. Cover with sriracha as a binder for the seasonings.

4

Coat thighs liberally with red pepper flakes, cayenne and garlic powder.

5

Once grill has reached temperature, grill chicken for 5 to 7 minutes, until chicken reaches internal temperature of 165°F. Turn regularly for an even cook and move to a higher shelf once done to avoid over-cooking. Once internal temperature is reached, remove chicken and let rest for 5 minutes to retain moisture.

6

While chicken is resting, prep sauce by mixing and warming the unsalted butter, Scotch bonnet powder, sriracha and chicken stock in a small grill-safe sauce pan on the grill.

7

Build sandwich by drizzling thighs with sauce and placing on buns.
