Ingredients
  

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup barbeque sauce
  • cup honey
  • ¼ cup hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Directions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Whisk together the sour cream, barbeque sauce, honey, hot sauce, garlic powder and paprika together in a medium bowl.
  • Pour half of the mixture into another bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Add the chicken breasts to a container or zip top bag along with the remainder of the marinade. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat a skillet to medium heat and brown the chicken on both sides, 3-4 minutes per side.
  • Transfer the chicken to an oven-safe dish and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken breasts reach 165 degrees F in the thickest part of the breast.
  • Drizzle reserved marinade on top of the chicken.

Notes

If you're not a fan of spice, reduce the hot sauce to 2 tablespoons. 
You can also grill the chicken, but the honey in the marinade may cause it to burn. 
Serve Spicy BBQ Chicken with mashed potatoes, rice, corn, salad or your favorite green veggies. 
Any remaining marinade (not what the chicken was soaked in) will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days. Dip fries into it, use it as a salad dressing or drizzle it over any other cooked protein like beef, pork or fish!
