The last few days I have been having chicken for dinner. The only problem is, there was never any sauce to go with the chicken and I felt that it was rather naked. I mean I could’ve used ketchup but the only thing I really like ketchup on is my fries. Then I started thinking about this barbeque sauce my parents used to always get and that stuff was so BOMB. So I thought why don’t I try making my own barbeque sauce with what I have at home. I looked up the basic ingredients in barbeque sauce, which I found out to be ketchup and brown sugar, and then concocted a recipe of my own. I didn’t go out and buy ANYTHING. All the ingredients have been sitting around my house for ages (hopefully none of them have gone bad because I didn’t check) and most of you probably have everything you need to make this as well!
EASY BARBEQUE SAUCE RECIPE:
1 cup of Brown Sugar (you can add a bit more or less based on how thick and sweet you want the sauce. I like mine more sweet and spicy and less tangy)
2 teaspoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar (can be substituted with apple juice and vinegar)
2 tablespoons of syrup (I used a really thick syrup, you can also use molasses)
2 teaspoons of hot sauce (I ended up using a lot more because it wasn’t spicy enough)
1 cup of Ketchup
2 teaspoons of paprika
2 teaspoons of garlic powder
A dash of salt and pepper to taste
Put all the ingredients into a medium sized saucepan, and mix them together on high heat on a stove. Stir continuously, occasionally taste, and add more seasonings to your liking. When the mixture is combined to your liking and tastes as you’d like, turn off heat and put the sauce in a ceramic container. Refrigerate sauce for at least 2 hours and then use as you please.
Hope you enjoy!
