Easy BBQ Chicken

Easy BBQ Chicken Ingredients:
1 (3 1/2-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups of your favorite bottled BBQ sauce or Simple BBQ Sauce (recipe follows)

Prepare a medium-hot grill or preheat the broiler. If using the broiler, line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Put the chicken on the grill or, if broiling, put it on the prepared baking sheet. Grill or broil, 4 inches from the heat, turning once, for 10 minutes per side.

Put 1/2 of the BBQ sauce in a small bowl, for drizzling and serving. Reserve.

Baste the chicken with the remaining sauce and grill or broil for 5 minutes more. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter, drizzle Simple BBQ Sauce and serve with the remaining reserved sauce.

Simple BBQ Sauce:
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped scallions (white and light green parts)
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated lime zest
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice

In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, and black pepper. Stir in the scallions, lime zest, and lime juice. Can be covered and refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Yield: 2 cups
