giada’s balsamic bbq sauce.

Are you ready for all the talk about Thanksgiving to be over yet? How about a recipe for something other than turkey, or dressing, or sweet potatoes? YES, PLEASE is what I’m thinking as I willy-nilly hit “mark all as read” in my reader. And why not provide you with yet another way to use my favorite ingredient… balsamic vinegar?

This bbq sauce is a staple in our house – I don’t make it so often that we tire of it, but every time I do I wonder why I don’t make it more often. It’s an easy way to dress up plain old chicken, and also a good thing to make when you want grilled chicken but forgot to marinate it. Not that this ever happens to me.

Giada’s Balsamic BBQ Sauce.
via

1 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat, and stir until smooth. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until reduced by 1/3.

We always use this on the grill, though I am sure it would work just as well over baked chicken. Or maybe even on a hamburger? Try it and let me know your favorite way to use it!

Big game Saturday, y’all. GO COCKS!
