My husband requested barbecued chicken on the grill for dinner. Since I didn’t have any store bought barbecue sauce, we played around with some ingredients and came up with this delicious sauce that was perfect for the chicken. Served with a huge fresh salad, this was a wonderful dinner.

The sweet taste of this BBQ sauce will be a great addition to your next barbecue. We tried it on a cornish hen and it was delish ... but I bet it would work nicely with pork chops too. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
