Yesterday, I published a recipe for a platter of delicious of chicken wings (Dab On ‘Em Wings). This recipe was probably one which appealed more to Panther fans than Bronco fans so today I thought I would bring forward a chicken platter for those who would cheer for the boys from the Mile High Stadium, the Bucking BBQ Bites. This is not my recipe, it was created by George Johnson from The Comfort of Cooking.
George’s Recipe combines chicken and bacon with a spicy sweet BBQ Sauce. The sauce is quite easy to make, just make sure you have some Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum on hand as it plays a starring role. Here is how to make these delicious tidbits:
Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce
1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Chile Sauce
1/2 cup Captain Morgan® Original Spiced Rum
1/4 cup Low-sodium Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
2 garlic cloves (crushed)
1 teaspoon Ground Dry Mustard
Ground black pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat
Bring to a boil
Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes
Use immediately, or store in refrigerator until ready to use.
I recommend that you may the sauce the day before the game and refrigerate it. If you don’t use it all up, don’t worry. The sauce tastes great with any recipe which calls for a tangy BBQ sauce.
Now that we have the sauce made. it is time to get on to those delectable chicken and bacon bites. (And there is no reason not to enjoy a Captain & Cola while everything is cooking.)
