A lip smacking tasty barbecue sauce is just the thing to perk up chicken, ribs, chops and burgers. You can brush this sauce over the meat as it’s cooking on the barbecue or in the oven, and serve it as a relish on burgers and bangers. We’ve used smoked paprika to give that smoky barbecue flavour even if you’re cooking indoors. You can use this BBQ sauce to make the popular pub dish, Hunter’s chicken. Simply wrap some chicken breasts in bacon, place in a baking dish, spoon over a liberal amount of BBQ sauce, sprinkle with grated cheese and bake in the oven at 190°C/350°F/170°C/Gas Mark 5 for about 35 mins until the chicken is cooked through.
