Recipe: Stacey's Famous BBQ Chicken

This is sticky, finger-lickin’ sauce that everyone, including my kids, loves. I make it in big batches now and give jars of it to family and friends.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups ketchup

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup Liquid Smoke

1/4 cup molasses

1 serrano pepper, finely chopped

2 Tbsp. prepared mustard

1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar

1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp. onion powder

2 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

4 chicken leg quarters

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first 12 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Set aside 1/2 cup sauce for basting; cover and refrigerate remaining sauce for later use.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  3. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Place chicken skin side down over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 20 minutes. Turn; grill 20-30 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting occasionally with reserved sauce.
Editor’s Note: We recommend wearing disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers. Avoid touching your face.
