Best BBQ Chicken Sauce

Summer means BBQ, and that means BBQ sauce. Sure there are lots of good store bought ones but this homemade version is WAY better. It is great on Chicken but it would be awesome on Ribs or Pork Chops too.

It is quick and easy.  You can keep it in the fridge for a couple of weeks so make a double batch! Once you taste this stuff you are going to want to put it on everything.

Here is what you need,

1 tsp of hot sauce, you can use more if you like more spice.
1/3 cup cider vinegar
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup molasses
3 tbsp. Dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup ketchup

Simmer all the ingredients for the sauce over medium heat until it is reduced to about 1 ¼ cup. It takes about 10 minutes.

To make the BBQ chicken, rub the pieces, I used boneless skinless breasts but you can use legs or thighs or whatever you like, with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put chicken on a pre-heated BBQ and cook until almost done, then baste with the sauce and keep turning until the sauce browns.
Serve with the extra sauce for dipping.

This sauce is so good! If you have never made your own BBQ sauce give this a try.
You will love it.
Oh and that corn, it is a new recipe I tried called Southern Skillet Corn. It was so amazing! I will share the recipe with you tomorrow.
