Best BBQ Chicken

belal-el-atari-bbq-chickenHope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend and you enjoyed plenty of barbecued foods like hot dogs and hamburgers. We all know how easy it is to make a burger or a hot dog on the grill, but what separates the real chef and grill masters from one another is making the perfect BBQ chicken. The key is to have the most flavor and keeping all the flavorful juices inside. This can sometimes be tricky and time and time again I have seen people overcook their chicken, burn their chicken, or not provide enough flavor on their chicken. The recipe you’ll find below will give you the best BBQ chicken not just at the local block party, but in the entire state. Enjoy the chicken and make sure you bring extra napkins.


  • 3 Cloves of Garlic (minced)
  • 2 Teaspoons of Butter
  • 1 Cup of Heinz Ketchup
  • ¼ Cup of Brown Sugar (packed)
  • ¼ Cup Chili Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ Cup of Celery Seed
  • 1 Tablespoon of Mustard
  • ½ Teaspoon of Salt
  • 2-3 Dashes of Hot Sauce
  • 8 Large Chicken Breasts

Preparation & Cooking:

  • In a medium to large sauce pan, saute the garlic (minced) in the butter until it is tender
  • Upon completion of the previous step, add the other 8 ingredients (excluding the chicken)
  • Bring the sauce to a boil, and don’t forget to stir it occasionally
  • Remove from the heat after the sauce appears mixed and ready. Allow the sauce to cool and keep in the same pan
  • On a cutting board, perforate the chicken breasts with a fork to allow the sauce to penetrate the interior of each breast
  • Once all chicken breasts have been perforated baste them with the sauce that should be cooled down a fair amount
  • After basting pop the chicken on the grill
  • Flip after the the bottom is cooked and then baste again with more sauce
  • Continue cooking chicken until there is no pink left in the middle and serve to hungry family and friends
  • Serve chicken with extra sauces for dipping and await the compliments

Hope you enjoyed my recipe for the best BBQ chicken. Have fun grilling this summer and let me know how your guests liked the chicken. Check back again soon for more compliments.
