A nice indoor barbecue recipe with a hint of apple. From Simple and Delicious.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2⁄3 cup chunky applesauce
- 2⁄3 cup spicy barbecue sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- Sprinkle chicken with pepper.
- In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil on both sides.
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour over chicken.
- Cover and cook 7-10 minutes longer.
Oh, the aroma! I know, but get off my lawn. (Wonderful sauce!) Made for A-NZ#62 recipe tag.
What a great dish to whip up after work. I sliced my chicken breasts in half (because they were very thick) and tenderized them before putting them in the skilled. I couldn't find unsweetened chunky applesauce so I used regular unsweetened applesauce. The flavors in the sauce were outstanding. I loved the natural sweetness of the applesauce with the BBQ sauce and the touch of heat from the pepper and chili powder. Delicious!!! Recipenapped for July 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.
So quick and easy to prepare with out any fuss.. I thought the combo a little weird when reading it but after mixing the apple sauce with spicy BBQ sauce it really does work and gives for a very flavoursome BBQ sauce.. I could not find chili powder here in Spain in the couple of supermarkets I went to so I bought cayenne instead. I just lowered the amount to half stated as this is a lot hotter and for us it was perfect, just the right amount of heat coming through. I will definitely be making this again and like another reviewer had stated I might try this with a bit of pork next time.. Full of flavour and a great combo if you like a sweet/spicy BBQ sauce.. Thanks for posting it was a winner for us!!!
