Ingredients

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper omit if preferred

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in medium saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium heat for 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 20-30 minutes before using.
  • If making sauce ahead of time, store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days after preparation. Bring to room temperature before basting chicken. This can be achieved by microwaving the sauce for 45-60 seconds in the microwave (depending on its power output, the sauce might need an additional 30 seconds.)
