Chicken with Balsamic BBQ Sauce

Sunday, February 8, 2009
This recipe is from Giada De Laurentiis' new cookbook. I got the book for Christmas and this is the first recipe that we have tried from it. This BBQ sauce was really good. It had a nice sweetness from the balsamic vinegar and was not as tangy as regular BBQ sauces. It thickened up nicely on the grill. I cut the recipe in half and grilled boneless chicken breast. I want to try it on a pork tenderloin next.

Barbecue Sauce

1 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbs worcestershire sauce
1 Tbs dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Combine all the barbecue sauce ingredients in a small nonreactive saucepan and whisk until the mixture is smooth. Simmer over medium heat until reduced by one third, 15 to 20 minutes.

  1. This is now my go-to BBQ sauce. I just grilled some pork chops last night using this. We liked it so much I made a 4x batch this morning just to keep on hand. Thanks!
