Preheat barbecue for medium-high heat.
Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Sauté onion and garlic until tender. Stir in ketchup, honey, brown sugar, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes to thicken sauce. Remove from heat, and allow to cool.
Lightly oil the cooking grate. Dip chicken in sauce, and turn to coat. Cook on barbecue for 10 to 15 minutes, turning once. Move chicken to the frying pan with sauce. Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side.
A sublimely flavourful recipe I tried it due to it's simplicity but love it for its flavour and how easy it is to adapt to a different palate, for dinner parties say. Clean plates guaranteed. Oh I also added twice the garlic and half a sweet onion too. - 25 Nov 2012
