Honey Mustard and Red Onion Barbecued Chicken

Cook Time: 20 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 4 servings


* 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
* 1/2 red onion, chopped
* 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
* 1/4 cup brown sugar, a couple of handfuls
* 1 cup chicken stock
* 1/2 cup prepared honey mustard (recommended: Honey Cup brand)

* 1/2 teaspoon curry powder, eyeball it
* 4 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breast
* 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
* Vegetable oil, for drizzling
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Preheat grill pan or griddle over medium high heat.

Pour 2 tablespoons vegetable oil into a small saucepan over moderate
heat. Add red onions and saute 3 to 5 minutes. Add vinegar and reduce

incorporate. Whisk in broth and honey mustard, allspice and curry.
Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to lowest setting.

Coat chicken with a drizzle of oil and salt and pepper, to your taste.
Place chicken on hot grill and cook 4 or 5 minutes, then turn. Baste

again and baste. Cook 2 or 3 minutes more to cook through and transfer
chicken to a platter and serve.
