Everyone raves at every picnic how delicious this chicken is. I have made it with pork ribs, chicken and salmon this is the best barbecue sauce!
8 chicken legs, 10 thighs or 6 breasts (or a mixture of each)
1 1/4 cups ketchup
4 tablespoons hot sauce
2 tablespoons dark molasses
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons whiskey (like Jack Daniel's)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 large garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
for extra heat add some cayenne pepper
Combine oil and garlic in a medium saucepan saute on medium heat for 3 minutes, add the rest of the ingredients. Cover and simmer 45 minutes, stir a few times. Add a little water if sauce gets too thick to pour. Let cool.
Place chicken with half the marinade in a zip lock bag, chill overnight. Reserve the rest.
When ready to grill, heat grill to high heat. Place the chicken on the grill, brush with sauce and cook until juices run clear around 25 minutes. Use the rest of the sauce for dipping.
