This week's chicken with mango barbecue sauce was chosen by Aggie of Aggie's Kitchen. I was super excited about this recipe because I love barbecue sauce and I was so excited to make my own! This sauce was very different than I imagined it would be at the outset but it was really good. The sauce was much thicker than I thought it would be. I substituted a green pepper for the red pepper and I used about a tablespoon of tomato paste and a splash of water in place of the tomato sauce. Otherwise, I pretty much stuck to the recipe. Maybe the changes resulted in a very thick sauce? I cant wait to see how everyone's sauce turned out!
I baked my chicken instead of grilling it. I was too tired to tackle cleaning the grill pan after cooking the chicken so I opted for the easy way. I baked the chicken in a covered dish for about 40 minutes and then finished it off under the broiler! It was excellent! The cats loved it!
Plus, I am using the extra barbecue sauce today to make barbecue pork. I left the pork and sauce cooking in the crock pot today. I can't wait to get home and see how it turned out!
Aggie, thanks for picking a fabulous recipe this week!
