What else to do with the first green tomatoes from the farmer's market than fry them up? I used this recipe and served them with jalapeno vinegar. I've also been yearning to start experimenting with my own bbq sauces. We haven't picked up a smoker yet, so I had to use my oven broiler. But, oh well, it was yummy anyway!
- Chicken for broiling (I use thigh meat)
- 2 cups cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 TB red pepper flakes
- 2 TB hot sauce
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1 whole onion, grated
- 2 TB catsup
- Whisk all the bbq sauce ingredients together in a saucepan early in the day.
- Bring to a boil.
- Cover, and reduce heat to low.
- Leave simmering all morning to thicken.
- Your house will smell like vinegar!
- Early afternoon marinade the chicken in the bbq sauce (you probably won't need all the bbq sauce--I had plent leftover for another time)
- When you're ready to make the chicken, turn on the broiler.
- Cook 8 minutes on each side, basting with bbq sauce you used to marinade every couple of minutes.
- Your chicken will get blackened--yum.
