This past weekend I was getting my foodie fix, also known as watching cooking shows on PBS because we don’t have cable, and saw this recipe on Everyday Food on PBS. I decided to give it a try. I had chicken legs in my freezer from when they were on sale a few weeks ago and thought that they would be great with barbecue sauce on them and baked in the oven. I was right, even though they took longer to bake than I had anticipated! I also tried the sauce on pork chops and it was just as good. This sauce does have some kick to it, so be warned! I had to make one modification because I didn’t have 2 cups of ketchup so I used about a cup of tomato sauce. I still have some sauce in my refrigerator so I’m still deciding what to make next to use some more of it.
