I saw this made on Good Morning America and the hosts were drooling all over themselves. It does sound good but I haven't yet made it. This recipe is supposed to be a la the old west on the trail. You may substitute chicken breasts, legs or thighs for the cut up chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In 4 qt pot, render bacon over medium heat.
  2. Add onion, garlic and jalapeno, sauteing until onion is translucent.
  3. Add remaining sauce ingredients, simmering slowly over low heat for 3 hours, until sauce thickens.
  4. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  5. Drizzle vegetable oil over chicken to coat and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Place chicken, skin-side down, on grill and cook approximately 15 minutes per side.
  7. Turn, as necessary, until chicken is nearly cooked through.
  8. Spoon sauce over both sides of chicken and continue grilling until chicken is cooked through or juices run clear, approximately 5- 10 more minutes.
