Best BBQ Sauce


BBQ Chicken and I have a history.

Before I embarked on my great food adventure of discovering an enjoyment in cooking, I was a one trick pony. No, it wasn’t that I only knew how to make BBQ chicken…I didn’t even know how to make chicken go from pink to white!

Whenever I ate out, no matter where I was (unless it was an italian place), I would always order BBQ chicken (if it was an italian place, i’d always order ravioli). You could have bet money on it and made a million. It was safe, I knew I would like it and I was not adventurous with food.

I’ve tasted a lot of BBQ sauce in my life. This recipe is by far my favorite! I wish I could say I made it up, but it comes from the lady who led me on my great cooking adventure, The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.

This BBQ sauce is a little spicy- if you breathe in a whiff of it in the right way it makes you cough. It’s also got a sweet side. It’s perfect, I tell you!

My other favorite part is the recipe makes enough that I can freeze the extra sauce and pull it out when I need to make a quick meal.

There are many ways you can use this sauce. The Pioneer Woman makes the sauce and then bakes it on chicken legs. I just use it as a dipping sauce, or I’ll pour it over chicken breast and bake it, like I did in the pictures posted.
