12 servings (serving size: 1 chicken leg quarter)

Make a sweet barbecue sauce for grilled chicken leg quarters by adding brown sugar and frozen apple juice concentrate to your favorite bottled barbecue sauce, and spice it up with just a sprinkle of red pepper and chili powder.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 6 ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Prepare grill or broiler. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Cook 10 minutes on each side. Brush chicken with sauce, and cook an additional 15 minutes or until chicken is done, turning and basting frequently.

The sauce was very good, although we used 3/4 c. of brown sugar and only 1/4t. of red pepper as we didn't want it too spicy. Next time would try 1/2t. red pepper and maybe 1/2c. brown sugar. Soaked the chicken in buttermilk seasoned with salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne for a couple of hours before grilling. Will definitely make this again.

Why call this sweet when it has spicy in it? I prefer my barbecue sweet - as in no spicy. I won't make this
