Harlem Sauce

35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
13 ingredients
6-8 servings
This is an excellent marinade and basting sauce for chicken, either on the grill or baked in the oven. I have perfected this over the years since I first happened upon a slightly different recipe from the US South - versions of the same are popular in the New York area, hence the name "Harlem Sauce". It's good soul food!I'd love to know what you think of my version, and what your own tweaks are to this, if any.
