Spring time is on and so is BBQ season! Here is my special secret recipe for my spicy-sweet BBQ sauce that will make you lick your fingers twice…
NICI’S HONEY-WHISKEY BBQ SAUCE (FOR BBQ CHICKEN OR RIBS)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, very finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 Tbsp honey
10 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp apple vinegar
1 Tbsp Worchester sauce or soy sauce
¼ Tsp cumin
¼ Tsp cayenne
(optional: ¼ Tsp liquid smoke)
For BBQ CHICKEN:
1 chicken in pieces
In a sauce pan heat olive oil and cook onion until soft but not browned. Add all ingredients and cook for 5 minutes until thickened. Use right away or store in jar glass for a few weeks.
For BBQ chicken:
Marinate chicken pieces in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Place on BBQ for 30-45 minutes over medium heat or bake on baking paper lined baking pan at 180 °C for 30-45 minutes turning chicken parts every 15 minutes.
Serve on sweet potatoes and asparagus which you add to the oven 20 minutes before the end.
