• In a large pot over medium, heat olive oil, then add onion and garlic. Sweat for a few min, stirring, without browning.

  • Add next 4 ingredients, bring to a simmer and reduce until slightly thickened, about 12 min, stirring constantly. Once sauce can coat the back of a spoon, taste and season with salt and pepper.

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat grill to med-high. Grill chicken until golden brown, 4 to 5 min on each side. When chicken is nearly cooked, start to brush with BBQ sauce. Continue grilling chicken until cooked through and temperature reaches 165°. Share the Sauce: This recipe yields 2 2/3 cups BBQ sauce, so you'll have plenty left for dipping. Or grill up extra chicken or ribs, basting with sauce during the last 3 to 5 minutes.
