  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Dash salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 bone-in chicken breast halves (8 ounces each), skin removed


  • 1. In small saucepan, combine the first 11 ingredients; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Reserve 1/3 cup sauce for basting. Cover and refrigerate the remaining sauce.
