Rich with sweet apricot flavor and the boldness of Asian inspired ingredients, this barbecue sauce is perfect for chicken. Given that this is a somewhat sugary glaze take care not to allow flare-ups on the grill as this can burn the chicken.
Monitored properly, this barbecue sauce will perfectly coat and caramelize on the meat, rendering a most mouthwatering grilled chicken experience. While this sauce works well on most pieces, we recommend using chicken thighs and drumsticks.
