You can adjust the chill to suit your taste just reduce the quantity of chilli powder. I haven't tried this as yet but am looking forward to it. Prep time includes 1 hour marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the chilli powder, sugar, paprika and salt in a bowl and mix together.
  2. Using rubber gloves, rub this mixture over the surface of the chicken pieces and set aside for 1 hour.
  3. Mix the barbecue and tomato sauces, orange juice and soy sauce together.
  4. Heat the barbecue or grill and begin to cook the chicken, turning frequently.
  5. When half cooked, brush generously with the sauce mixture.
  6. Brush again when the chicken pieces are cooked through, just before serving.
  7. Serve remaining sauce with chicken if desired.

I used 8 chicken leg quarters for the chicken pieces. I think this would be a great addition to my Once a Month Cooking plan as I can throw the chicken with the rub on it into the freezer and then defrost when I need it. I followed the recipe as directed using Bobbie Q sauce recipe#59772 for the barbque sauce, freshly squeezed OJ, and dark soy sauce. I ended up just baking the chicken in the oven as I couldn't get the barbque grill started by myself. My 7 year old gobbled up the chicken and thought it was great. The rest of us thought it was pretty good too. Thanks for posting!
