Heinz Classic Barbecue Sauce is rich & smokey, perfect for dipping and on the label it also mentions that it is for marinade. I decided to follow the Marinated Chicken Wings recipe with a bit of an adjustment. I used about 1 kg of chicken thigh and drumsticks to marinate with 1/3 bottle of Heinz Classic Barbecue sauce. I placed the chicken into a large zip lock food bag with runny honey, ground ginger and soya sauce. I then sealed the bag and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Placed it on a baking tray and cook in pre-heated 200C/Fan 180C/Gas 6 for 40 minutes, turning half way. Turn the oven up to 240C/Fan 220C/Gas 8. Brush the chicken with the remaining sauce on both sides and bake for a further 20 minutes until sticky.
Serve with a pot of Heinz Classic Barbecue Sauce to dip the chicken into, chunky chips and salad (with Heinz Salad Cream with Onion & Chives). It was absolutely scrumptious! The meat was tender and juicy. The smokey flavour comes through to the meat. It went down really well, finished within minutes! It was so well marinated, we didn’t even need to dip the sauce. If the weather had been nicer, we would have barbecued it. I bet it would have tasted even better!
I am also a big fan of the squeezy bottle as it easy to dispense, no drip and made it easy for the children to get the sauce easily. I would rate it 5 out of 5 stars. RRP £1.79 for a 480g pack. Available in all major supermarkets from April 2012.
Heinz Sticky Barbecue Sauce has a gloriously thick texture and summery flavour, and immediately gives a welcome life to meals like marinated chicken pieces. I decided to follow the Sticky Chicken Thighs with Fried Rice recipe but do a bit of adjustment. I used about 1 kg of Chicken drumsticks and thigh to marinate with 1/3 bottle of Heinz Sticky Barbecue sauce. Place the chicken into a large zip lock food bag. Seal the bag and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 6 hours or overnight. I always like to prepare my food a day before to shorten my cooking time.
Placed it on a baking tray and cook in pre-heated 180C/Fan 160C/Gas 4 for 40 minutes, basting with the remaining Heinz Sticky Barbecue sauce throughout the cooking. Served with Jasmine rice and stir-fry vegetables. My chicken shown here was slightly burned as I forgot to set the timer! It was quite unexpectedly sweet and rich! Every bite of the chicken tasted was delicious! The skin was coated with the thick, rich sauce. The colour of my food just looked simply gorgeous – the photo doesn’t do it justice!
I would rate it 5 out of 5 stars. It is excellent for marinating and for dipping! I will definitely buy this again for the barbecue season! Just hope the weather gets better! RRP £1.79 for a 500g pack. Available in all major supermarkets from April 2012.
