IngredientsFor the chicken seasoning: • 1/2 tablespoon paprika • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder • 1/2 teaspoon sugar • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper For the chicken: • 5 pounds chicken drums • olive oil For the sauce: • 1 cup raw honey • 1/2-3/4 cup original barbeque sauce • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce • 1/8 cup soy sauce • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced • 1/4 cup white onions, diced
Begin by combining the paprika, garlic powder, sugar, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl.
Pat dry the chicken drums and place on a cutting board.
Coat the chicken in olive oil.
Season the chicken generously with the previously prepared chicken seasoning blend.
Refrigerate the chicken drums for at least an hour.
Create the sauce by combining the honey, barbeque sauce, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, garlic cloves, and white onions in a saucepan over medium heat.
Bring the sauce to a boil while stirring frequently.
Reduce the sauce to a simmer and allow the sauce to thicken for 15 minutes.
Preheat the grill to medium heat. Grease the grill and place chicken on the grill gates.
Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and with the teriyaki barbeque sauce.
Cook the chicken, regularly brushing it with the sauce. The chicken should cook for about 15 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees when inserted into the thickest part of the meat.
Remove the chicken from the grill, allowing it to rest for 5 minutes, and serve.
