What You’ll Need:

1 1/4 C. Ketchup

1 tsp. (or to taste) hot sauce
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
6 Pieces of chicken legs and thighs
1 Tbsp. olive oil


1. To make the BBQ sauce, combine all the ingredients except for the chicken and olive oil in a medium saucepan. Cover the pan and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Prepare the chicken by tossing with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Keep in a resealable plastic bag and chill for up to two days.

3. Once you have a desirable cooking campfire, set aside about 1/2 cup of prepared BBQ sauce.

4. Grill the chicken until browned, about 15 minutes, turning occasionally.

5. Brush the tops with BBQ sauce and cook a few more minutes. Turn and brush on more sauce, repeating twice more until the chicken is nicely browned and cooked all the way through.

6. Enjoy some tasty chicken!
