Very Easy


Number of serving: 5
1 head garlic, peeled and minced

1 cup soy sauce

½ cup sweet-style tomato sauce or catsup

½ cup sprite or 7-up

¼ cup calamansi or lemon extract

1 teaspoons ground pepper

6 tbsp brown sugar

1 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

½ teaspoons chili powde

2 teaspoons cornstarch or corn flour.

2 kilograms (4.4 libras) chicken pieces


  • Following the procedures in my pork barbeque and chicken barbecue recipes, combine the sauce ingredients in a mixing bowl starting with garlic, soy sauce and tomato sauce or catsup. Add in sprite followed by calamansi extract and mix thoroughly.
  • Continue by adding the ground pepper followed by brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and chili powder.
  • Continue mixing until a sparkling black homogenous sauce is attained. Taste the barbeque sauce and adjust the sweetness according to your preference, but at your own risk.
  • Pour the mixture into a blender and pulse it several times until a smooth, homogenous consistency of the sauce is attained.
  • In a medium sauce pan, cook the mixture over medium heat. Allow it to boil with regular stirring. Simmer on low heat for several minutes or until the sauce is cooked through.
  • Disperse cornstarch in small amount of water and add it into the sauce. Continue simmering on low heat with stirring until the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and let to cool. The barbecue sauce is done.
  • Now the final step is to test the sauce. Using half of the produced sauce, marinate about 2 kilograms (4.4 libras) chicken pieces, mostly drumsticks and thighs, which have been properly washed and thoroughly drained.
  • Mix the chicken and marinade properly to evenly coat the chicken. Marinate for at least 4 hours or better yet over night inside the fridge.
  • Using charcoal grill or gas grill or like in our case an electric grill, barbecue the chicken in batches until it is gorgeously cooked through on all sides.
  • Continue barbecuing for the rest of the meat. Top or baste the chicken with fresh barbecue sauce during the cooking process if you like.
  • Transfer the chicken barbecue in a wide plate and serve along side with a saucer full of the fresh barbecue sauce. You can eat it with steamed rice or sliced bread.
