Best Ever BBQ Chicken

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by DDW

The BBQ sauce on this juicy grilled chicken is out-of-this world! We "wow" people with this recipe every summer during outdoor entertaining. I always double the sauce recipe to have extra on the side for dipping. The original recipe calls for 2 small boiler chickens quartered but we prefer using bone-in, skin on chicken breasts. Slow cooking on the grill gives it the best flavor. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do - it's a favorite at this house.

We thought this sauce was indeed great. I couldn't grill the chicken so I pour the sauce over and baked slowly at 300 degrees for about 1.5 hours. The sauce is nice because it's actually thick enough to stick to the chicken. I added the full amount of celery seed but I would reduce that because it was a little stronger flavor than we wanted. Overall, a fantastic chicken recipe and once we'll make again for sure.
