Citrus BBQ Sauce

Charles did the cooking again today.  I bought a whole chicken a day or so ago and was very excited to find it on the grill when I got off work.  “Here, taste this,” he says as he waves a pan of BBQ sauce at me.  I tasted the sauce and agreed the citrus was fantastic, I suggest sweetening it up a bit but we agree to just give it a try as is.  Great decision! The dinner was amazing.

Citrus BBQ Sauce

  • 2 mandarin oranges ~ we always pick up a few “cuties” this time of year
  • 2 Tbs minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 1/8 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs Jack Daniels
  • 1 cup ketchup

Zest one of the mandarin oranges and juice them both; set aside juice and zest.  Over medium heat sauté onion and crushed red pepper in butter until tender; add orange juice, zest, and remaining ingredients.  Bring all ingredients to a simmer and remove from heat; allow to rest while chicken or meat of choice is cooking.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
