  • Meanwhile, for sauce, in a large saucepan melt butter over medium-low heat. Add onion, salt, and garlic; cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Add paprika, chili powder, crushed red pepper, and black pepper; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Add the water, cider vinegar, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce; bring to boiling. Whisk in tomato paste and molasses until smooth. Boil gently, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until sauce is thickened and reduced to about 4 cups, stirring occasionally.

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn chicken pieces bone sides down. Transfer 1 cup of the sauce to a small bowl; brush this sauce over the chicken. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F for breasts; 180°F for thighs and drumsticks). Reheat some of the remaining sauce; pass with the chicken. Store any remaining sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

The chicken was delicious, but the sauce did not thicken well so I added 2 Tbsps. of Cornstarch. It thickened up right away. Perfect!

Bake the chicken for 25 minutes at 400° Farenheit. CAREFULLY open the oven, squeeze on your favorite barbeque sauce -- mine is a 50/50 mixture of Sweet Baby Ray's Regular Sauce and Speed Queen Man That's Hot Sauce. Close the oven, let it bake for another 12 minutes. ENJOY!

sauce take much longer then 15 to 20 minutes to thicken. I'd give it an hour to an hour and a half, or reduce water. =/
