All-American BBQ Chicken
GOOD HOUSEKEEPING ONE Try our sweet and spicy sauce on pork spareribs too.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 cans (15 ounces each) tomato sauce
1 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup light molasses
1/4 cup Worcestershire
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
2 (3 1/2 pounds each) chickens, each cut into quarters, skin removed if you like
1. In 10-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire, brown sugar and ground red pepper; heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, 45 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly. If not using sauce right away, cover and refrigerate to use within 2 weeks.
2. Reserve 1 1/2 cups sauce to serve with grilled chicken. Place chicken quarters on grill over medium heat; cook 20 to 25 minutes, turning chicken once. Generously brush chicken with some of the remaining barbecue sauce; cook 20 minutes longer, turning pieces often and brushing with sauce frequently until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with tip of knife. Serve with reserved sauce. Serves 8.
