EASY DIY Kansas City Style Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce for EASY Rotisserie Chicken Meal - 52 Sauces and Rubs

NOTHING could be easier.

Pre-cooked, pre-seasoned Rotisserie Chicken. Simply separate the leg/thigh quarter from the bird, drizzle the KC Style Sweet/Heat BBQ sauce (see recipe below) and bake (350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. I did wrap in aluminum foil for the first 20 minutes and uncovered for the last 10 for crispy skin).

But the secret is in the sauce. For most of America,when you think BBQ sauce you think of a thick tomato based combination of sweet taste and the POW of Pepper Spices.  Here is a simple to DIY recipe for you to get bragging rights at home!

LOVE THIS SAUCE and a great way to spruce up a Store Bought Fully Cooked, Fully Seasoned Rotisserie Chicken!

OK... Here's what I did...

Kansas City Style
Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce

  • 2 TBS Butter
  • 1 small Red Onion, Minced
  • 5 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Cups Ketchup
  • 1/3 Cup Molasses
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1/4 Cup Cider Vinegar
  • 2 TBS Yellow Mustard
  • 1 TBS Chili Powder (Adjust amount to taste)
  • Big pinch Salt and Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper (Adjust amount to taste)
Cooking Directions
  1. Melt butter in medium size saucepan. Add Onions and saute for about 5 minutes, until onions turn translucent and are soft.
  2. Add Garlic and saute for an additional one minute.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients. Stir to mix. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer.
  4. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Sauce will thicken as it simmers. Add additional water if sauce is too thick, or Tomato Paste if sauce needs to thicken.
  5. Using a hand wand mixer or a stand blender, blend the sauce until smooth.
  6. Transfer to Mason Canning Jars while still HOT. Close with canning lids and allow to cool on the counter. Jars will self seal as the sauce cools. Sauce will keep for up to 2 months sealed and 2 weeks once the sauce is opened.
  7. Use on Chicken, Pork, Beef or Sea Food and ENJOY!!!


So,  I am pleased to list this as one of my Growing list of  "52 Grilling Time Secret Extras" or "52 Ways to Cook BBQ and Grilling Recipes"!!!

Well over 52 recipes actually as I just can't stop... Over 100 in one grilling season (I love to grill!). But not just leat... Drinks, Condiments (LOTS of different BBQ sauces), Drinks, Desserts... even specialty items like GRILLED Pizza, and fun shaped Watermelons.  Easy and these ideas will make you the MASTER of your Backyard Domain!


This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Uses For a Rotisserie Chicken"  (Now close to 100!)...I am so confused... $5.49 for a fully cooked, fully seasoned Oven Roasted, Rotisserie Chicken. Yet shop in the raw meat department and most raw chickens are at best $8 each and usually far closer to $10. Anyone have an answer??? Me either. So, I can either rail against the machine, or learn to embrace the beauty that is the $5 chicken! In this pin are recipes I have made, and recommend. MORE than 52 (I just can't stop)..
You get the idea.  From Scratch Pizza to Chinese Take Out recipes, Lots of Soups and Chili... Appetizers to Main Courses (Still can't find a dessert, but I am looking).  More than enough ideas for that store bought bird to shine with just a little extra work
