My husband wants to make chicken on the grill with some kind of BBQ sauce. We have none and I hate to run to the store for one item during this time of coronavirus self-isolation. But I do have all this stuff at home. I also added a couple packets of fast-food ketchup and taco sauce, but suit yourself!
