Now that we are headed for summer, my grill is getting a workout. I must say that I've got it easy because the grill is right outside the back door on the deck and is connected to a gas line. This makes cooking anything outside super easy. One of my families favorites is chicken with BBQ sauce. I came up with this sauce about a year ago and it's become one of the "go-to" ingredients in my kitchen. It's sweet and sticky with a spicy kick so make sure to have lots of napkins on hand!
Sweet & Spicy BBQ Chicken Legs
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 onion minced/grated
2 cloves garlic grated
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 1/2 ketchup
2 tablespoons honey1 10 oz. jar red pepper jelly1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Creole mustard (grain mustard)

Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Add the onions and cook until caramelized. Add the garlic and tomato paste. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the pepper jelly, vinegar and ketchup. Continue to cook and stir until the jelly is dissolved. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, then add the mustard and honey. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
