We love BBQ chicken and this recipe is so easy, that I love making it! BBQ Chicken
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3 1/2-pound chicken legs and/or wings
**Because I like to have the BBQ marks on my chicken like it would have if done on the grill, I like to do this:
I keep out about 1/3 of the mixture and keep it in the refrigerator until I'm ready for it. I also take Reynold's wrap and pull off a couple long sheets. Going from the short end, I fold in half and then in half again and I continue folding until I have long 'ropes' of foil. I then put the foil in the bottom of the crockpot. You want the foil to look like a trivet, or like the burner from on top of your stove. Spray with cooking spray and place chicken on your 'burner'. This helps any condensation stay away from the chicken so that the sauce stays thicker. About 15 minutes before serving, get the 1/3 of mixture out of the refrigerator and pull chicken out of crock pot. Heat your grill (inside grills work great) or you can finish this off in the broiler. Once you have your chicken on plate brush some mixture on your chicken pieces and put on hot grill. Grill for about 5 minutes. If using the broiler, put chicken on broiler, brush with mixture and then broil and broil for about 5 to 10 minutes depending on how crispy you like your chicken.
Happy Slow Cooking! Enjoy and Hugs!
