Agave BBQ Chicken

20 Aug

Agave Barbecue Sauce

Sauce made with olive oil, onions, fresh garlic, tomato sauce, agave syrup, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and salt & pepper.

I have to say this was my first time making my very own sauce.  The reason I probably had so much fun making it is because it was so interesting to me that I wasn’t using an actual BOTTLE of sauce from the store for the first time ever.

Agave Barbecue Chicken with Sauce

Skinless, boneless chicken breasts covered in sauce.

I used a recipe from the Dr. Oz show but I only made the chicken part of it—not the ribs.  It was one of the simplest things I could have made.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, try making your own sauces from scratch.  Give it a whirl.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Some homemade sauces actually taste much better than store-bought.

    I hate boring food, and I’m always looking for sauces that have a real bit to them. This sauce looks great.

    yay, DIY bbq sauce! I’m all about doing it yourself so you don’t have to buy. Using agave is intriguing. Great idea :-)

      I love agave. It sweetens everything up just right.

        have only used it in cocktails to replace simple syrup. Cooking with it not a bad idea :-)

    Did you like it? Looked a little watery.

      Yes, it actually was good. There was some reserve sauce leftover to add more on top of the chicken when serving, too.

      I think I did it because of the agave, too. I’m an agave girl.

So what do you think? Hmmm.....? Tell me, Tell me.
