Backyard Applewood BBQ Chicken

So I made this Wednesday and the review….. YummmmmmY!!

I’m always looking for new chicken recipes, because chicken is mega good for weight loss and health but we aren’t big chicken fans. So making this bbq sauce added some deliciousness to the chicken!

Applewood BBQ Sauce with Chicken (also good on pork for pulled pork) Sauce directions here serve about 8


What you need:

1 cup of bacon crumbles
2 cups apple juice
Extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup (or more to thicken) tomato puree or paste
1/2 onion, chopped
1 garlic cloves, chopped
2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1-2 tablespoons orange zest
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoke flavoring
2 teaspoon Black pepper
1 finely diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoon jarred diced sweet peppers

Mix ingredients for sauce, boil 5 mins stirring constantly, simmer 30 mins., then allow to cool to room temp.
Put chicken in lidded container cover with sauce refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour to overnight.
Meat can be baked, grilled, or crock pot slow cooked in sauce.
