You can get both sticky and regular grenade kills towards the end of Ghosts (level 3.2) when there are 3 separate groups of rats in two adjacent rooms with 5-6 rats in each group. You will need to run ahead of Khan to prime and throw the grenades before he activates the respective groups' movements (their locations are very obvious). The checkpoint is also right before this section.

It should be noted that I did not unlock the "Ka-Boom" achievement at the same time as the "Sticks like a bur" achievement, though a quick checkpoint reload solved that problem.

Update: As suggested by several commenters, I would like to note that one will need to obtain grenades (regular or sticky) at an earlier point in the story, as level 3.2 does not contain any grenades for purchase or pick-up. Zalexzy suggests purchasing grenades in the titular market of level 2.5.

If you have already been searching everywhere in the game in order to unlock the "Explorer" achievement, you should have no trouble finding grenades. I would simply suggest not using them until reaching the point described above in my solution.
