Homemade BBQ Sauce!!!




















Great Oven or Grill BBQ Chicken recipe  

 Don’t buy BBQ sauce from a jar!  This is easy and SO much better!  

Ida’s Barbecue Sauce (from Cookin’ With Queen Ida 1990 Prima Publishing)   

Make this bbq sauce- it is truly worth it!    Makes 1 1/2 cups

 ¼ cup olive or vegetable oil 
 1 ½ cups chopped onion
 4 tsp. minced fresh garlic (about 4 large cloves)
 1 cup tomato sauce
 1 cup water 
 ¼ cup ketchup
 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
 1 tbsp. brown sugar 
 ¾ tsp. salt 
 ¾ tsp. cayenne (or to taste)
 ½ tsp. dry mustard
 ¼ tsp. black pepper 
 1/8 tsp. nutmeg    

Heat the oil in a saucepan (preferably stainless steel or enamel-coated).  Add onion and garlic and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until softened (about 5 minutes).  Blend in tomato sauce, the water, ketchup, and vinegar.  Continue cooking slowly until mixture bubbles.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently.  Taste carefully and correct seasonings.  Sauce may be used as is, or it may be strained or pureed to form a smooth sauce, if preferred.  (I made it as is)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Then, get a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish.  Spray with nonstick cooking spray.  Place 3-4 chicken breasts cut up in dish (feeds about 4 people).  Spoon most of the sauce over them (save some for basting).  Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes until chicken is tender. Periodically check on the chicken while cooking and add some BBQ sauce to baste.    Serve with potato or rice and vegetable and you are done!   

 What are some tips on making this meal work?  While you are simmering the marinade, preheat the oven.    Or, you could make the BBQ sauce the day before and marinate in advance.  Any marination in advance will always make the meat taste better.     You could also put the chicken on the grill, then top it with the sauce and continue to cook and baste until cooked through.   Enjoy!!!!
