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.
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 1 cup Heinz ketchup (a must for us)
- 1⁄4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup chili sauce (Heinz is a good one)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 tablespoon celery seed
- 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 dashes hot pepper sauce
- 8 large chicken breast halves, bone-in with skin (a large family pack will usually have about 7-8 breasts.)
