Great dish, one of my friends gave me this recipe, she says it is a "stand by" fav. with her family.
- 1 2⁄3 cups Dr. Pepper cola
- 1⁄2 cup oil
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2 cup vinegar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1⁄4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 2 medium onions
- Mix together all ingredients and simmer 15-20 minutes.
- Baste chicken.
- *This can be done on grill outside too, or oven.
- This sauce is enough for two whole chickens, halved.
I wanted to love this recipe. It was fairly easy to make and tasted good. I bought a bottle of Dr. Pepper on a whim and didn't finish it, so I remembered reading about this recipe and decided to make it. I skipped the onions because I don't ever add them in my BBQ sauce. I simmered it for about 40 minutes and it was still too thin. Next time I would try simmering even longer. I poured it in a bottle and applied it to my chicken legs every 5 minutes in the oven. The brown bits where the sauce really caramelized were GREAT. I feel like if it had been thicker, and if I had broiled it for a bit at the end, and the entire leg was covered in that sticky brown caramelized sauce, this would be a five star recipe!
This was a good recipe which left the chicken very moist. Although I baked mine which as the previous review says, it probably would have a more sharp flavor with grilling or broiling. Will try again on the grill. I have to say though, it was good.
This was very good! I made mine in the crockpot which probably wasn't a good idea as the chicken really didn't retain a sharp flavor which I think would happen if I grilled or broiled the chicken, but it was still good!
