Sweet & Spicy Grilled Chicken Legs

 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)
salt and pepper

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.
