Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cook honey, tomato paste, 1/4 cup water, mustard, Worcestershire, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and 3/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper in a small saucepan over medium, stirring often, until mixture comes to a boil. Boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in vinegar, divide sauce into 2 small bowls; set aside.

When briquettes are covered with gray ash, pour them onto bottom grate of grill. Adjust vents as needed to maintain an internal temperature of about 400°F. Coat top grate with oil, and place on grill (if using a gas grill, preheat to medium [400°F].) Place chicken on oiled grate. Grill covered until grill marks appear about 3 minutes per side. Using 1 of the bowls of sauce, brush on chicken evenly, a couple tablespoons at a time. continue to cook, flipping and brushing every minute, until it is cooked through about 5 more minutes. Discard any remaining sauce used for basting.

Step 3

Place tomato slices, pickles, and 1 chicken piece on bottom half of each bun. Brush with sauce from second bowl, and add lettuce. Cover with bun tops.
