An Unexpected Sweet Ingredient Will Level Up Any Barbecue Chicken
By Crystal Antonace
Regardless of whether you use bottled or homemade barbecue sauce to cover roasted chicken, you may want to consider adding apple butter to upgrade the flavor next time.
Apple wood is used for barbecuing because it provides a mildly sweet flavor, and adding apple butter to your barbecue chicken mixture has a similar effect.
To make barbecue chicken this way, mix equal ratios of barbecue sauce and apple butter. Lather it on raw chicken pieces before baking them in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes.
Once your chicken has come out of the oven, feel free to serve it with your leftover barbecue and apple butter mixture as a dipping sauce.
