Deen Brothers's BBQ Chicken
My son has recuperated from being sick earlier this week. Seems it was just a virus that aggravated his asthma. Now we're all sitting tight and hoping we don't get the H1N1 virus. I work in a local hospital and we have seen a number of cases this week. We also ran out of the vaccine that were given to the employees and I was one that had not received it yet. Oh well.....let's keep our fingers crossed.
This recipe was another husband requested one. Most of the recipes that involve Paula Deen are! This was very good. Since we're not grilling anymore this time of year I just baked these in the oven and they were very tasty. And very simple. Give them a try if you are looking for a new BBQ recipe!
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar (I used light brown which was fine)
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke (I did not use this)
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 (3 1/2 pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces (I used legs and thighs)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or prepare a grill (brush the grill grate lightly with oil).
In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients except the chicken. Reserve 1/3 cup of the BBQ sauce; set aside. Add the chicken to the remaining sauce in the bowl, turning to coat.
Arrange the coated chicken in a roasting pan or on the grill. Cook (covered, if grilling) for 40 to 45 minutes or until cooked through, basting with the reserved 1/3cup sauce after 20 minutes.
