Grandma Hollar's No BBQ Sauce BBQ Chicken

“My great grandma's recipe and the best BBQ chicken our family has ever had. No BBQ sauce required. We usually just use leg and thigh quarters but any part of the chicken can be used. Cook time is time chicken is cooked in sauce, not grilling time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pan mix all ingredients. If making more than 3 pieces of chicken you'll want to make enough sauce to cover the chicken. We've tripled and even quadrupled the recipe before.
  2. Place cleaned chicken pieces in the pan.
  3. Cook for 20 mins at medium temperature.
  4. Leaving chicken in the sauce place in refrigerator until ready to grill. We have grilled immediately but it's always better if allowed to sit in the sauce. The longer the better. We often leave it over night before grilling.
  5. It's usually a good idea to place foil on the grill rather than cooking directly. The chicken is so tender it sometimes tends to fall apart. Don't want to lose any down in the grill.
  6. Grill until no pink left on the chicken.
