Swaziland - Chicken with Swazi Sauce

Swaziland is a sovereign state in Southern Africa. This recipe is a braai (barbecue) sauce but we're going to use the sauce on some baked chicken instead.

Ingredients:

12 oz beer
1 cup tomato ketchup
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1/2 tablespoon tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper


 Put everything in a bowl and mix well.


 Add the chicken and cover. Leave overnight in the fridge.


 Place the chicken in an oven proof dish with some of the sauce.


 Bake at 200C for 30-40 minutes.



The sauce had a very beery flavour that went really well with the spicy ingredients in the sauce. I didn't think I'd like it since I'm not a fan of beer but I did. Leigh and Erin both ate the chicken but complained of the flavour being a bit weird. I was pleased the sauce had given the chicken such a strong taste because other overnight marinade attempts have been a bit feeble for us in the past. This would be a great recipe for a barbecue to go along with a cold beer - if you like that kind of thing :)
