BBQ Sauce


This was the best homemade BBQ sauce ever! Although I did the whole thing “to taste” so I’m not sure of the ingredient portions, I basically combined 2 cloves garlic, ~1 cup of ketchup, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 a can of tomato paste, 2 tbsp cider vinegar, and 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce in a sauce pot and warmed it through. Then I covered the chicken with it (3 drumsticks and 3 boneless thighs) and put it in the oven for 40 minutes at 375*. I saved a little bit of the sauce to baste at the end and it thickened up quite a bit and was so smoky and sweet and delicious – I would definitely recommend saving some since the chicken sauce gets watered down with the chicken juice as it bakes.

we’re gluten/wheat free and cannot have Worcestershire sauce. can I omit it?

Yes, definitely. Maybe a little Liquid Smoke in its place (if that is also gluten-free, I’m not sure)
