I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but this would be really good with chicken thighs – with or without skin and bones. I made this on my flat top grill in my house, but you could just as easily make this on your grill outside or smoke them in your Traeger smoker, if you are lucky enough to have one, like me. After using our Traeger, we’re never going back to a gas or charcoal grill again. As my husband says, we’re grill snobs now.
A way to make this taste better is to use better chicken, like free-range chicken. The taste difference is very noticeable – and it’s healthier to eat chicken that isn’t full of antibiotics. The main problem is that free-range chicken isn’t cheap. One way I have found to buy it more affordable is to buy it in bulk online.

In an effort for you to get to know my family a little better, I thought it would be fun for you to watch one of my many attempts to entertain my children. I had them do a tower challenge. The object of the game started out to build as tall of a tower as you can with Dots and spaghetti, but the spaghetti didn’t work very well, so we switched to toothpicks. Watch the video to get to know my children a little better and to see who won!

I think this would be a fun activity for a family party, birthday party, family reunion or just with your own family or friends for fun. It’s easy to buy the ingredients, gives you an activity and then it’s fun to eat the ingredients after. You could also try it with different candies, like gum drops, orange slices or maybe even gummy bears. It would be fun to experiment with different candies.
I like how this has a simple marinade that makes it taste really good when I grill it. And then the dipping sauce only has 5 ingredients and complements the chicken really well.
Combine the marinade ingredients in a plastic bag with the chicken.
Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Grill approx. 15 minutes each side until done. I used an indoor grill pan and it worked fine.
Serve with pita bread.
