BBQ Chicken: Family Recipe
This recipe originated somewhere with one of my sisters in law, but not sure which one.
No one has ever made this for me, so I had no idea what they were talking about, when I received a forwarded email from one of them looking thru the family archives for this recipe. There it was, the family secret bbq sauce ending up in my mailbox.
So of course, I had to see what all the fuss was about.
It's a simple marinade/sauce made with a raw egg, oil, vinegar and sage.
Shake it up in a jar and wait about an hour for it to thicken.
I marinated chicken parts on the bone (with skin) for a few hours in the concoction, and then used it as a sauce to baste the chicken while grilling.
The chicken was so moist and tender and had a nice tang to it.
Really simple and delicious.
Now I will share the recipe with you!
Husband's Family BBQ Sauce Recipe:
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used canola)
1 large egg
1 cup cider vinegar
2 Tbsp dried sage (I actually had dried sage!)
1 tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp black pepper
Place this mixture in a jar and shake. Keep in the fridge for an hour, it will thicken a little.
It is best used as a basting sauce to brush on the chicken every few minutes while grilling, but I also marinated the chicken in the sauce for extra flavor.
Garnish with fresh sage leaves. Delicious!
