Brown Sugar Barbecue Chicken

After missing last week’s Martha Mondays project I was keen to get back to cooking with my favourite bloggers.  Brette chose Barbecue Chicken and I loved the simplicity of the recipe.  Only a few ingredients and all that I had in the kitchen cupboard already.

I did make a couple of changes.  Firstly, I never eat meat which is attached to the bone so I wasn’t going anywhere near drumsticks or wings and I used chicken breast instead.  It just took a little longer to cook in the oven.

Now, I made the sauce and it was nice but I had imagined something a bit more smokey and after a rummage in the kitchen cupboard and fridge, I found the perfect thing.  Brown Sauce.  I reckon I added about a teaspoon to a tablespoon of it.  Just a little but it made a difference.

I served the chicken with garlic rice and peas (I was in a rush) but we loved it.  And we will definitely be having this again for dinner very soon.

  1. It looks nice and saucy Pru. I will make ours tonight for dinner. I’m not sure what brown sauce is, but I have some liquid smoke in my cupboard. I’m just not sure of all that sugar. 🙂 We’ll see what I come up with. 😉

    • I think the sugar made it nice and sticky. I did cut the recipe down by half as it was only for two chicken breasts. Brown sauce is a tomato/vinegar based sauce found next to the ketchup in the UK. . Its great in a bacon or sausage sandwich and I sometimes use it when making spaghetti bolognaise or chilli to add a bit more flavour. Can’t wait to see your results!

  2. I’m making mine tonight and will hopefully get the results posted tonight too. I love your picture with the ingredients all labeled. How do you do that?

    • Thanks Sara. Can’t wait to see how yours turned out and what you thought. I use to do the words on the photo but it is soon closing down (but is free to use) to edit photos.
