    The carrot, with its distinctive bright orange colour, is one of the most versatile root…

  • ½ white cabbage, shredded
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 tbsp salad cream
  • crusty bread, to serve

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Slash the chicken with a sharp knife and toss with the barbecue sauce in a roasting tray. Season with black pepper and roast for 45 mins, basting every 15 mins with the sauce from the tray, until sticky and cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, make the slaw. Mix all the vegetables together in a large bowl, then toss through the salad cream and some seasoning. When the chicken is cooked, serve with the slaw and some crusty bread, if you like.

Yummy. I'm amazed at how easy it is to make your own BBQ sauce! Looking forward to trying it with sausages as previously suggested.

I also used the homemade bbq sauce and it was absolutely delicious, making the bbq sauce was less effort than going to the shops to buy some.

I made the homemade BBQ sauce and marinaded chicken thighs in it overnight. We ate it tonight and the BBQ coating was absolutely delicious, so highly recommend making your own BBQ sauce with the recipe given. Also, it was very quick and easy to do.

Very nice - I used aioli instead of plain mayonnaise.

Could this BBQ sauce be made up and frozen?

Yes you can make the sauce mentioned in the Tip box and freeze it, or you can freeze the drumsticks already in the sauce.
