Chili Sauce Chicken

Dish: DInner
Dish Type: Meats
Cooking Method: Grilled
Difficulty: 3 / 10
Servings: 8
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 30

  • 1 12-oz bottle - Chili sauce
  • 1/3 cup - Chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup - Olive or vegetable oil
  • 10 cloves - Garlic, minced (or 5 tsps minced garlic from the jar)
  • 4 1/2 tsps - Dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp - Salt
  • 1/8 tsp - Pepper
  • 8 - Chicken thighs
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first seven ingredients; mix well. Remove 1/3 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Add chicken to bag; seal and turn to coat. Chill for at least 2 hours. Drain and discard marinade from chicken. Grill, covered, skin side down, over medium heat for 20 minutes. Baste with some of the reserved marinade. Turn; grill 10 minutes longer or until the chicken juices run clear, basting frequently.

This can be varied with different pieces of chicken (breasts, etc), and when the weather/time is un-cooperative, I've done these under the broiler, or even in a roasting dish with the sauce poured on top. So delicious!
