Fireman’s Chicken

College students have a love/hate relationship with the police, more hate depending on who you ask or which officer. They might break up parties, but who are you going to call when the sketchy “locals” try to hang out with you. But mostly they break up the parties and therefore they suck.

But it would be un-American to dislike the fire department. Firemen belong to a cooler fraternity where you get to use axes and chill with your bros all day. And like fraternities, they have a chef that whips up grub for the crew.

The Fireman’s Chicken is an easy way to cook up some fiery good food in a hurry. A quick marinade and a grill is all you need to feed a large group. This is the best way to show your respect to the firefighters, besides accidentally burning your house down and having them save you.


2 chicken breasts sliced thin
2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons of sriracha
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne powder
salt and pepper
oil for the grill grate (1 tablespoon of oil can be mixed in marinade as well)

Note: The most important part is the mustard and hot sauce base. The extra spices are optional but will make it better.
