Barbequed Chicken

Barbequed Chicken

Serves 6.

I doubled the recipe for a family gathering, hence the mound of chicken breasts in the photo above. But for enough marinade for about 6 breasts,
follow the recipe below.
Barbeque chicken on the grill is a classic summer recipe.
Slightly adapted from: Williams-Sonoma Grilling & Roasting cookbook

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 T. unsalted butter
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1-1/2 c. tomato ketchup
1/3 c. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 c. steak sauce2 T. cider vinegar
1/3 c. firmly packed brown sugar

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, vinegar, and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover partially, and simmer until thickened slightly, about 20 minutes. Set aside.

Reserve 1/4 cup of the sauce for basting while grilling, and 1/2 cup of sauce for passing at the table once you've sat down to eat. Use the remaining sauce to marinate the chicken breasts for at least 30 minutes, but ideally overnight.

Grill chicken breasts over medium heat until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
