5 ingredient BBQ chicken

It's BBQ season again and I'm so happy and excited! In a few weeks I will take my boys (my pups Hugo & Lestat) to Fire Island for some weeks and all we do is BBQ, morning-noon and night. It hardly ever gets a chance to cool off.

This is a really easy and great BBQ chicken that I came up with last year. The store was closed and I wanted BBQ sauce but the bottle in my fridge was empty. I made one with what I had in my pantry, and it came out great!

Fast and tasty, the sauce can be used for any meat and fish and is great for shrimp as well.

Happy summer!

5 ingredient BBQ chicken

1 small can of tomato sauce

1-2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

pinch of chili

salt and pepper

1 large organic chicken, cut into 4 pieces


1.Place tomato sauce, sugar and chili in a small saucepan and let it simmer until it starts to get really thick, about 20 minutes. (I would start with 1 tablespoon sugar and let it simmer for a while and then add more if needed)

2.Season with salt and pepper.

3.Rub all the chicken parts with salt and pepper and brush the sauce on.

4.Place on a medium grill or roast in the oven at 375F for about 40 minutes.

Brush more sauce on after half time.

Serve with a smile and more sauce on the side!
