How to Make Chicken and Mushrooms in Barbecue Sauce

  • Lightly coat the pan with oil and put in the chicken and mushrooms to cook (either grill or broil, as you like).
  • Start on the sauce while this cooks.
  • The chicken has to be 3/4 cooked before adding the sauce.
  • Fry the onion in a little oil, till light brown.
  • Stir together the brown sugar, corn syrup, corn flour and chilli powder, and then add to the onions.
  • Add 1/2 cup of water and blend well.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the orange juice.
  • Simmer on a low flame, without covering, for 30 mins. Stir occasionally.
  • Stir in the orange juice now and boil.
  • Once the sauce is to the consistency you desire, pour it over the chicken and mushrooms in the last quarter of the cooking time, and mix it well so that it covers every part of the chicken.
  • If the sauce is excess, it can be served as it is, for individual helpings.
