This is a really good, little spicy bbq sauce that I like to use on chicken, pork, beef, sausages, turkey and even in my beans, it's sweet and spicy and really easy to mix up

How to Make Spicy Smokey BBQ Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. How to make it:
    Remove skin from chicken or breasts if not already; and place in a large ziplock bag.
    Combine olive oil, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and garlic in a small bowl and pour and rub over chicken.
    Let chicken marinade for at least an hour, up to 24 in the fridge.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or prepare a grill (brush the grill grate lightly with oil).
  3. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients except the chicken. Reserve 1/3 cup of the barbecue sauce; set aside. Add the chicken to the remaining sauce in the bowl, turning to coat.

    Arrange the coated chicken in a roasting pan or on the grill. Cook (covered, if grilling) for 40 to 45 minutes or until cooked through, basting with the reserved 1/3 cup sauce after 20 minutes.
