Contributed By: Parker


2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 to 4 pounds each), cut into 8 pieces each
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 small onions, finely chopped
2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


1. Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Grill, skin side down, uncovered, on a greased rack over medium heat for 20 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, make barbecue sauce by heating oil over medium heat. Add onion; saute until tender. Stir in remaining sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
3. Turn chicken; brush with barbecue sauce. Grill 15 to 25 minutes longer, brushing frequently with sauce, until a thermometer reads 165° when inserted in the breast and 170° to 175° in the thigh.
