Mild Barbeque "floating Chicken" Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by FaithfulFriend

This is a family favorite! It's very tomatoey, and "saucy", and the "floating chicken" part of the title is a nickname my young daughter gave to it as she was eating it as a chicken sauce! That's because we like to use the recipe as an oven broiling sauce when it isn't grilling season.... The recipe makes a lot, probably a few cups worth, so if you do use it to sauce enough chicken for an average-sized family, with the oven-roast method I mention, the chicken may well be floating it it! Serve the extra over rice, it's special-enough-tasting to enjoy!

Came across this recipe while searching for something else and the name caught my eye. I prepared this exactly as directed by the recipe, using a liberal dash of Frank's Hot Sauce. I really love this sauce and now have a bottle in my fridge, ready for just about anything. This could be a very versatile sauce, reduce the water and use it for meatloaf topping, burgers, steaks and of course chicken! If I were to do anything differently, I would leave out the minced onion only because I am not fond of the texture, but the flavor is wonderful. I probably would prefer to use real onion. Anyway, just as it is, it is very very tasty and a keeper! Thanks FaithfulFriend :)
