Zesty Barbecued Chicken

Many commercial barbecue sauces are very high in sugar, so this low-carb, tangy-sweet sauce recipe is a good one to keep on hand.

Oxmoor House JANUARY 2005

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half)


  • 1 1/2 cups no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 (8-ounce) skinless, bone-in chicken breast halves
  • Cooking spray


1. Combine first 9 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes.

2. Pour 1 cup tomato sauce mixture into a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Set aside remaining tomato sauce mixture. Add chicken to bag; seal bag, and shake until chicken is well coated. Marinate in refrigerator 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.
