BBQ Chicken.......indoors

Today was a busy day with a little shopping and little church and a bit of cooking. Ben stopped by before work to pack a lunch and have some dinner but no other takers tonight so there are some leftovers for the rest of the week.

I made a BBQ chicken recipe for Alex Guarnaschelli from her Alex's Day Off show. I love her stuff and her attitude towards cooking and dining.

I cut this sauce recipe in half but here is the whole deal. I used fat chicken thighs because they were $1 a pound (really?) and they cooked up tasty and crisp and delicious.

  3 cups ketchup
  2 cups cider vinegar
  1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  1/2 cup light soy sauce
  1 cup light brown sugar
  1 cup dark brown sugar
  2 tablespoons dry mustard (preferably Colman's)
  2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  1 cup chili powder
  1 "knob" fresh ginger (about 4 inches), peeled and cut in 3 pieces
  5 large cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  2 lemons, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices

I cut this in half for about 12 thighs.

Combine all in a sauce pan and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove ginger and lemons and reserve 1 cup of sauce to pass. I lined a pan with foil (non stick) and dredged each thigh in the sauce and arranged on the baking pan. I salted and peppered the thighs and baked at 350 for 20 minutes then turned them over. I removed them, drained some of the liquid from the pan, painted them up with sauce again, raised the oven temp to 400 and baked them 10 minutes or so on each side.

Tasty and moist with crispy skin and a great sauce.
