Easy Barbecued Chicken

Easy Barbecued Chicken

2 pounds chicken pieces

1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced

Red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper

Easy Barbecue Sauce:

1 cup ketchup

1/4 cup molasses

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Pinch red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon vinegar

Wash chicken and dab dry with a paper towel, then season with salt, pepper, pepper flakes and minced garlic.

Clean the grill off with a grill brush and a towel, and lightly brush with olive oil to keep chicken from sticking. Heat grill on a medium-low setting for 5 minutes.

Grill chicken, skin side up and with grill top down, for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, turning occasionally. Chicken is done when meat is fork-tender and juices run clear. At the last minute, baste chicken with barbecue sauce, turning once to allow sauce to “dry.” Take off grill immediately, and serve with side of barbecue sauce.

Easy Barbecue Sauce: Mix ingredients in small saucepan and cook over medium heat until bubbly. Use to baste chicken on grill after it is cooked or on the side. Makes about 1 cup.

Serves 6.
