Gluten Free. Low Sugar. Dairy Free. Soy Free.
BBQ chicken seems like an essential component to a fabulous 4th of July celebration. Paired with some baked beans and coleslaw or a seasonal garden salad and baked or grilled sweet potato wedges...perfection!
This simple BBQ marinade is low in sugar compared to most BBQ sauces so that you can enjoy some without feeling too guilty. Just be sure to use organic, no sugar added ketchup or a can or organic tomato sauce.
Try this with our Simple Coleslaw and Baked Black-Strap Beans and let me know what you think.
