"I love this sauce, you have to make certain that you simmer it uncovered not covered to thicken up it's also best when made one day ahead"

Step 1

Melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat; add onion, and saute 4 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook and saute 1 minute. Stir in ketchup and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer UNCOVERED for 25-30 minutes. Cool. At this time I would chill for 1 day before you use it.

Yum, yum and yum again! We loved it on baked chicken and will have it again sooner than later. The sauce was so good. I even put some under the skin to flavor the chicken more.

We thought this sauce was superb! I slathered it on chicken thighs that I grilled on our gas grill. They came out perfect with just the right amount of sweetness. Thanks for posting! Made for Alphabet Soup tag.

I made this sauce as directed and was quite pleased with the end result. It has just the right amount of sweetness. I used it on chicken pieces that I baked in the oven. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.

This sauce was excellent on our pork chops that we slowly barbecued on the grill. I cooked the chops just a little then kept adding layers of barbecue sauce every few minutes throughout the cooking process. They were really good! My little one asked for a second chop, so I know I will use the sauce on other things since he loved it too!
