This sweet and tangy sauce shared by Joey McGuire of Lynn, Indiana is easily assembled with basic pantry ingredients. Brushed on chicken leg quarters, it's bargain-priced at just 39 cents a serving. Try it over beef or pork, too.

"This recipe is definitely an example of "the sum is better than it's parts". I make my coffee very strong and felt like that was overpowering the other flavors, so I added a bit more ketchup. It's a super simple recipe with everyday common ingredients. It's a keeper!"
