Homemade BBQ Sauce! So easy!

To be honest, I’m not much of a bbq sauce kinda girl. I saw a recipe for bbq chicken and since I am always looking for new ways to make chicken, I figured I’d give it a chance. It turns out sweet and spicy at the same time.

For the chicken, I cooked about 1/2 pound of chicken breast in a skillet. As it cooks, shred it with a wooden spoon or Pampered Chef Mix and Chop! I wrapped mine in a whole grain tortilla, and lettuce wraps are another way to go. I like the Romaine Lettuce because it can really hold up!

Ingredients for bbq sauce:

  • cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. unflavored gelatin (this comes in a box in the baking aisle)
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. raw honey
  • 1 cup all-natural ketchup, no sugar added
  • 1 Tbsp. orange marmalade
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, gluten-free
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. mustard powder
  • ¼ tsp. ground allspice
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp. ground cayenne pepper (optional)
  • ¼ tsp. smoked sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
  • 1 tsp. ground smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp. chili powder

Steps:

  1. Sprinkle chicken broth with gelatin in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Bring vinegar and honey to a gentle boil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat; gently boil, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes, or until honey just begins to caramelize.
  3. Add broth mixture, ketchup, marmalade, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard powder, allspice, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, salt, paprika, and chili powder. Mix well.
  4. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; gently boil, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.

** Refrigerate leftover sauce in an airtight container for up to 4 to 5 days.
