Honey Barbecue Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Leahs Kitchen

This recipe makes quite a bit of sauce so I always have left overs for another week. Delicious and not too hard. You would do best to use a sweet vinegar I usually use balsamic just because it is what we usually have on hand but rice vinegar is sweeter and lighter. I usually serve a medley of baked potatoes and carrots, and also fresh rolls as sides. I hope you enjoy!

These were ace, mate! At first I thought it to be too sweet with the molasses and golden honey but when I let the dish rest for a few minutes, the flavors seem to have balanced out well. The chicken's tender and indeed, there was alot of sauce. We had an extra cup left. I'll just half it next time.Thanks for a very enjoyable dish! Made for ZWT5 Aus/NZ for Zaar Chow Hounds.
