Lemon and Garlic Barbecue Sauce

    30 minutes

    A lovely lemony basting sauce for chicken. You can also marinate the chicken overnight in the refrigerator, reserving enough sauce to coat the chicken as it cooks on the grill.

    Very tasty and easy to prepare. Fast becoming a regular at our house. Thanks so much for posting.  -  28 Nov 2011


    A wonderful marinade. Really penetrates the meat with lemon flavor. I substituted Splenda for sugar & used garlic-olive-oil. Marinated a cut-up chicken for 3 hours or more (overnight even better) and baked it at 350 F on a rack pan in the oven -- 45 min for small pieces, 55 min for big pieces. Easy and fabulous.  -  21 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is an awesome recipe! I increased the flavor even more by adding the zest from the lemons I juiced and adding several more cloves of garlic. I marinaded it for about 2 hours. Wow! It was SO yummy and SO moist. I served it with rice pilaf and corn on the cob. What a fantastic barbeque!!!  -  23 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
