Chili Garlic Glazed Chicken with Spicy Aioli

If the chili lime flavored Cholula is my least favorite, the chili garlic is by far, hands down, my absolute favorite!  It's got the perfect combination of spice and garlic.  And it goes so well with everything.... did I mention it's my favorite??

The great thing about this recipe... it's simple AND it produces some amazing flavor.

Don't want to grill the chicken?  No problem, pan sear it or bake it - either way, you know it's going to be good because it's got a SAUCE!!! :)

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 Tablespoon melted butter, slightly cooled
3 Tablespoons chili garlic Cholula hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon honey

1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2-3 Tablespoons chili garlic Cholula hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry.  Season both sides of each piece of chicken with salt and pepper.  Mix butter, 3 tablespoons chili garlic Cholula, lime juice, and honey together in a small bowl.  Place chicken in shallow dish or resealable bag and spoon sauce mixture over it.  Cover/seal and place in refrigerator for 2 hours.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together all ingredients for the spicy aioli until well combined.  Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Oil the grill grates.  Remove chicken from marinade and place directly over the fire.  Cover and grill for 6-10 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through (160-165F).  Let rest 5 minutes after taking off grill.  Serve with Spicy Aioli.  Enjoy!

For someone as busy as you, you manage to keep coming up with important preparations. When I finish off my nearly full quart bottle of Lousiana hot sauce I'll try the chili cholula.

I have got to make this! I love chicken (like WAY better than shrimp);-) and like garlic probably as much as Andrea. This is a dinner coming up on our menu in a couple weeks. Thanks!

I think our favorite of the four has been their Chipotle hot sauce. Mixing it with agave nectar makes a great drizzle sauce much like this sauce you made.
