"Comfort is key for a barbecue." -Ashley Madekwe
Usually barbecue is restricted to the summer - and this sauce works on the grill really well - but I designed this as a barbecue that you can make any time of the year. It is super simple: the hardest part of the recipe is peeling and chopping the shallot.
The barbecue can be eaten right away, but it makes great leftovers and it is especially good if you use a couple of forks to shred the chicken and fold it into the sauce (this makes fantastic barbecue sandwiches).
This might be a sweeter barbecue than you're used to, but I love the combination of the spice and peach flavors. The recipe is maybe not as spicy as many might like it, and adding either a jalapeno or more cayenne will spice it up.
Servings: 6 | Serving size: 4 ounces chicken with 1/4 cup sauce
Cooking time: 30 minutes
This recipe can easily be multiplied and the cooked chicken, refrigerated, keeps well for 3-4 days. Try leftovers on sandwiches.
