This recipe comes from my new cookbook, Easy Caveman Cookbook, and is damned tasty if I do say so myself.
I love barbecue sauce. But nearly any store-bought variety will have high fructose corn syrup as a main ingredient. And sure, we have some sugar with this recipe between the honey and the orange juice. But I’ll take the stuff of bees and citrus fruits over the high fructose corn syrup crap any day of the week. This barbecue sauce works great with pork or beef also, so use what ever animal carcass you prefer!
- 4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless.
- 1 can tomato paste (6 oz.).
- 2 tbs apple cider vinegar.
- 1 tbs Dijon mustard of choice.
- 1/2 tbs honey.
- 1 tbs chili powder.
- 1 tsp paprika.
- 1 tsp Tobasco sauce.
- 1 tsp black pepper.
- 1 tbs olive oil.
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced.
- 1/2 small yellow onion, minced.
- Juice from 1/2 small orange.
- In a small sauce pot, heat olive oil over high heat. Saute the garlic and onion until onion is translucent.
- Add the tomato paste, vinegar, mustard, honey, and orange juice to the sauce pot. Reduce heat to medium and cook for a minute or two while stirring.
- Brush the sauce over the chicken breasts. Grill over high heat. Rebrush chicken with sauce to desired taste and cook until done. Enjoy!
