Well I know I have been slacking on the blog posts! I have a whole bunch of photos waiting to go up. After I get past some business deadlines I will be back at it! But this just couldn’t wait. I love me some BBQ chicken and this homemade sauce is a fun spin off of BBQ and has a little pep to it as well. Here is the fabulous recipe!
For the Sauce
Olive oil for cooking
2.5 Tbl. finely chopped onion
1 Garlic clove, minced (I used a spoon-full of pre-minced garlic from the jar)
3/4 Cup Cola ( I used about a Cup and I only had Pepsi)
1/3 Cup ketchup
1 Tbl. cider vinegar
2 Tbl. Worcestershire sauce
1.5 tsp. Chili powder
For the Rub
1.5 Tbl. Dark brown sugar
1Tbl. sweet paprika ( I used regular, and I think I would use less paprika next time)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3 Chicken Breasts cut in half.
First cook you cook up the yummy sauce:
Saute the onions and garlic for a few minutes in some olive oil, stirring occasionally. Stir in Cola and the rest of the sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until the sauce reduces to about 3/4 cup. It will get nice and thick like BBQ sauce. Pour some sauce into a cup for basting the chicken, reserve the rest for dinner time!
Next make up the chicken rub:
Combine all ingredients, stirring well. Rub spice mixture evenly over both sides of chicken.
Now you can place those bad boys on the preheated grill and baste the top with the sauce. Cook 5 mins, then flip and baste the other side. Don’t be shy with that sauce either!
I highly recommend, thought it was scrumptious!
You can serve it with Peppered Lime Rice, Just cook up some rice squeeze a lime over the top, stir it up and top with lots of salt and PEPPER! I got hooked on this when I went to Thailand, they served rice with salt and pepper on top and a lime on the side! YUM.
I expect you all to try it.
