Adding a homemade touch to your backyard BBQ is easier than ever with this recipe from Sweet Paul. He cooked up this sauce when he discovered the bottle in his fridge was empty and the store was closed. So this five-ingredient masterpiece uses just what he could find in his pantry, and things you’ll likely find in yours as well! So take a peek and see if an impromptu BBQ is in your future.


  • 1 small can of tomato sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • pinch of chili
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 large organic chicken, cut into 4 pieces


  1. Place tomato sauce, sugar and chili in a small saucepan and let it simmer until it starts to get really thick, about 20 minutes. (I would start with 1 tablespoon sugar and let it simmer for a while and then add more if needed)

  2. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Rub all the chicken parts with salt and pepper and brush the sauce on.

  4. Place on a medium grill or roast in the oven at 375F for about 40 minutes, brushing with more sauce after 20 minutes.

  5. Serve with a smile and more sauce on the side!
