    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup red wine
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup
    • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
    • 1 tablespoon dry mustard powder
    • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Whisk together the barbecue sauce, soy sauce, red wine, maple syrup, chili powder, dry mustard powder, garlic powder, onion powder and cumin in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
    3. Place the chicken breasts into a baking tray and pour the sauce over the chicken. Turn the chicken pieces over in the sauce to coat both sides.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear, about 40 minutes. Remove the chicken from the baking tray and keep warm.
    5. Pour the remaining sauce into a saucepan, place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Whisk the cornflour and water together in a small bowl until smooth. Whisk the cornflour mixture into the sauce. Reduce heat to a simmer then allow the sauce to thicken, whisking constantly. Return the chicken to the dish and pour the thickened sauce over the chicken to serve.

    Great recipe! I had everything in my fridge, which is always a plus! I did think the spices were a bit much, so I cut them all down by a 1/3. To keep the chicken moist, used a 9x9 inch pan so the sauce covered more of the chicken and I also baked it covered with foil. My husband loved it!  -  08 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have to say 1 tablespoon of chili powder is waaaay to much. Next time I will put 1 teaspoon. It tasted like pure chili sauce. I might try this again but would def. not use that much chili powder. BF is not picky and he thought it tasted like chili. I usually only try something if it's had at least 100 reviews now I know why. I'm sure the recipe would be great otherwise.  -  20 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Awesome! We all loved it. Was told the recipe was a keeper. I read other reviews before I made this and took the following suggestions... used a smaller baking dish and covered with foil. Only ingredient I changed was the red wine because we didn't have any. In place of that I use 1/8 cup each of water and balsamic vinegar.  -  02 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
