Cary Grant Barbecue Chicken Ingredients

  • 3 1-1/2 pound chickens
  • 1 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup A-1 sauce
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic (chopped)

Instructions

Cut the chickens into serving pieces and brown in fat, using no flour. Salt and pepper to taste while cooking.

Then, combine one cup tomato ketchup, one-half cup Worcestershire sauce, one-half cup water, one-fourth cup A-1 sauce, one-fourth cup sugar, one-fourth cup cider vinegar, one chopped onion and one clove garlic chopped very fine.

After the chickens have been browned, place in a roaster, pour this sauce over them, cover and bake in a moderate oven (300 degrees) until tender. If the sauce needs thickening, add a little corn starch mixed with cold water and cook until starch is thoroughly done.
