Happy Friday, everyone! You made it through another week! Here is a delicious chicken recipe that you can enjoy over the weekend. I don’t know about y’all, but in the summertime, we grill A LOT. Like about 3 times a week. My husband is the grill master and he enjoys grilling. It’s just so nice to sit out on the deck, smell the barbecue cooking, and eat some delicious grilled meat.
This particular recipe is all about the sauce. There’s nothing special really about the chicken, but the sauce is what makes this dish! Here in the South, we are connoisseurs of barbecue sauces, and each one has it’s own merits. Some people prefer the more vinegar-based, tart sauces, while others (like myself) prefer the richer, sweeter sauces. Then there are those who prefer the white sauce that originated right here in Alabama.
This sauce has just the perfect amount of sweetness with the honey and brown sugar, and it’s the perfect consistency! Not too thick, and not too thin. Another great thing about this recipe is it only takes about 3o minutes total…so you can have more time to sit on the deck, drink your sweet tea, and listen to the frogs.
- 1 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. minced garlic
- 3/4 c. ketchup
- 1/2 c. cider vinegar
- 1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/4 c. honey
- 3 Tbsp. Worcetershire sauce
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. Yellow mustard
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 4 chicken breasts
- In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the vegetable oil. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the remaining sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes. Pour 1/2 of the sauce in a small bowl for basting the chicken, reserve the other half for dipping.
- Grill the chicken on medium high heat, for about 10 minutes on each side. It tastes best if you only turn it once.
- Baste generously with the small bowl of sauce every 3 or 4 minutes. Serve with the remaining sauce on the side for dipping.
