Maple Mustard BBQ Chicken

Every once in awhile you come across a recipe that looks good on paper and makes you have a completely silent dinner. This was one of those meals. The chicken turned out so good, it was moist but yet crisp on the outside. The maple mustard BBQ sauce was tangy and finger licking good. We will be making this again. Infact I think we will be making some more of the BBQ sauce and keeping it on hand to use more often.

Pepper Added by Joey - NONE. Can you believe it???

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 large red onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon whisky
2 bone in chicken breasts
Salt and pepper

1. In a saucepan saute the onion in the oil until lightly browned.
2. Stir in ketchup, maple syrup, vinegar, mustard and whisky. Bring to a boil.
3. Lower heat and allow to simmer for 30 minutes.
4. Preheat your BBQ to medium heat.
5. Brush chicken with oil and season with salt and pepper.
6. Grill chicken until juices run clear. For the last 15 minutes of cooking baste the chicken with the BBQ sauce.
