About this recipe: A not-too-sweet, not-too-spicy barbecue sauce for chicken. You can of course use chicken legs or thighs instead of breasts. Great on pork chops or spare ribs, too.

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

Absolutely superb sauce which gets thicker as you cook. I burnt the first one and still tasted great. Made with chicken and ate cold the next day and yes, still superb! Well done Amanda - 11 Jul 2013
