Barbecue sauce
  1. Mix all the ingredients for sauce in a small saucepan and gently simmer it on medium heat until reduced to half and turned thick. This will take about 8 to 10 minutes. Pour the sauce in a glass jar with airtight lid and use as required.
barbecue Chicken
  1. Preheat your over at 200 C / 390 F. Take the chicken in a large bowl and toss with the vegetable oil, salt and pepper.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray/smear cooking oil all over it. Aluminum foil is optional though but helps for easy clean up.
  3. Cover the chicken with another aluminum foil and roast them in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes turning them once in between after about 20 minutes.
  4. Once the chicken is nicely roasted and almost cooked through, take them out for glazing with the barbecue sauce.
  5. Heat a grill pan until super-hot. Brush it with some oil so the chicken doesn’t stick.
  6. Place the chicken on the hot grill pan and brush the top with barbecue sauce. Turn them over and brush the other side too. Continue to cook the chicken, basting frequently with the sauce, for about 5 to 6 minutes until the chicken legs are glazed thoroughly.
  7. Serve your hot & smoky barbecue chicken drumsticks with more barbecue sauce on the side. Enjoy!
