This Sweet Deviled Baked Chicken is sweet, spicy, tangy, juicy, and d-e-l-i-cious!

Chicken breasts seasoned with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper get baked and doused with a spicy honey, mustard, and vinegar based sauce. Let’s spice up your weeknight meal rotation!

It’s Cold Outside but Baby, This Chicken is Hot!

I was considering what a cold season picnic by the lake would look like and, aside from freezing my behind off, I concluded that you would have to eat spicy foods—maybe even sneak some Kahlua into your thermoses of hot chocolate.

Now, I ate this chicken with collard greens, coleslaw, and candied yams BUT—with the leftover—I think it would make an amazing chicken salad sandwiches for a cold weather picnic. It’s spicy enough to take the chill off your bones but sweet enough you wouldn’t be spending your meal inhaling and exhaling like a cartoon choo-choo train.

What Should You Serve With Sweet Deviled Baked Chicken?

Try pairing it with my Easy Skillet Potatoes with Smoked Paprika and Dill.

Potatoes not your style? Try pairing it with buttered rice—there’s enough sauce to go around!

I also recommend a green vegetable of some sort like green beans or collard greens.

And don’t forget the cornbread!
