Apricot BBQ Chicken
1 cup Apricot Preserves
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsp minced garlic (I used about 3-4 cloves)
2 tsp hot pepper sauce (I use Frank's Red Hot, or Louisiana brand)
Chicken (whatever cut you like!)
-In a saucepan, place your apricot preserves.
-Then, add the rest of your ingredients.
-Stir all ingredients together with a whisk, and turn on the heat to medium.
-The sauce starts out really thick, and gloppy from the apricot preserves. As you cook, and whisk, it will thin out a little, and get more incorporated. Also, it's really important to whisk this recipe a lot as it cooks, and to not get overzealous on the heat. Burnt apricots will NOT add a good flavor to your sauce.
-Place your chicken, in a large bowl (or Ziploc bag), and then pour enough of the sauce over in order to marinate each piece.
-Save your extra sauce in a tupperware container, for basting, if you're grilling, and for all kinds of great uses later in the week!
-After you've marinated your chicken, you can either grill it, or bake it in the oven at 350* for about 45 minutes!
-Be sure to spend plenty of time bragging about how you made your own BBQ sauce!
