That said, even if, by some miracle I found a sauce that met all my criteria, most barbecue sauces contain “natural flavors” After a few horrible experiences involving things that should have been completely safe I am terrified of natural flavors on anything that does not also say “gluten-free”.
Finally, it always bothered me that most barbecue sauces have to be painted onto chicken skin after the chicken is already cooked. I want to paint it on BEFORE. I want to just paint the sauce on my skinless boneless thighs, shove them in the oven and then have dinner half an hour later without fearing that I will “burn” the sauce. I want the sauce to flavor the meat and I want it to be something that a clever eight year old can make.
So without further ado, here is a barbecue chicken recipe that uses practically no dishes and is ready in 30 minutes and yes it tastes good.
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
3 tablespoons veggie blend juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Chicken parts (I go with skinless thighs)
Silicone brush for painting sauce onto chicken
Small cup for mixing sauce
Baking dish for cooking chicken
Measuring cups and spoons
Mix all ingredients in small cup
Take the skinless chicken parts and using the brush paint them with the mixture. You can set them aside in the fridge for a while or just pop them in the oven and bake at 425 until
