Favourite Barbecued Chicken

    30 mins

    A not-too-sweet, not-too-spicy barbecue sauce for chicken. You can of course use chicken legs or thighs instead of breasts. Great on pork chops or spare ribs too.

    1. Preheat barbecue grill for medium-high heat.
    2. In a frypan, gently cook onion and garlic until tender. Stir in tomato sauce, honey, brown sugar, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes to thicken sauce. Remove from heat, and allow to cool.
    3. Lightly oil the barbecue. Dip chicken in sauce, and turn to coat. Cook on barbecue for 10 to 15 minutes, turning once. Place the chicken to the frying pan with sauce. Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side.

    Since it's freezing outside, I decided not to grill, but baked the chicken instead. I just put the chicken pieces in a baking dish and covered them with sauce. I also added one tablespoon of prepared mustard to the sauce as well. I won't be going back to the bottled stuff again, this sauce was delicious.  -  12 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I doubled this recipe to feed four. To the sauce I did add a squirt dijon mustard and a touch of Liquid Smoke. This was a quick and easy chicken recipe.  -  29 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Love to grill but had no time. Doubled the sauce recipe and put four frozen chicken breasts in crock pot, dumped the sauce on top - slow cooked about eight hours. House smelled so good when we got home. Serve with a bagged green salad and microwave baked potatoes with a little extra sauce and some shredded cheese on top. Delicious! Felt like someone had been home cooking dinner for us!  -  16 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
