Country Barbecued Chicken Recipe

This moist chicken takes minutes to cook using the direct grilling method. The thick zesty sauce is equally tasty over pork. If you'd like, make a double batch of sauce and reserve half of it to serve at the table.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 to 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • 2. Brush chicken with butter. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned. Baste with barbecue sauce. Grill 4-6 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting and turning often. Yield: 4-6 servings (3/4 cup barbecue sauce).

"This is great but I make chicken like this with the sauce I buy. Now I have to decide if I should stop buying the sauce and make it myself or save some time and money and keep buying it."

"The first time I made this my husband loved it. He says it tastes like a sauce his mother used to make and took him back to those days. Now I love making it for him. Can use on chicken or pork and works great in the oven!!"
