For picnics and so forth, I cook the chicken ahead of time about 3/4 of the way and then finish it over the coals. This cuts down on the cooking time and mess.
Chicken with BBQ Sauce
8 oz can Hunt's tomato sauce
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer over low heat until volume is reduced and sauce is darker and thicker. Oh... about an hour should do it.
3 T brown sugar
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 t minced garlic
1 T lemon juice
1 T apple cider vinegar
Put chicken pieces in baking dish or casserole which has been coated with non-stick spray. Spoon BBQ sauce over each chicken piece, adding some between and underneath the pieces to prevent sticking.
Bake covered at 350 degrees. Turn pieces every 15-20 min or so. Uncover after 30 min or so and continue cooking. Add more BBQ sauce when/if it starts to dry, although some browning of the sauce is desireable.
Chicken is done when it's done. Don't overcook, in fact if you will be cooking it again later, a bit underdone is better.
Cool chicken and refrigerate until ready to use. Re-heat on the grill, brushing with extra sauce as desired.
