Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce

Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce
Grilled chicken breasts dripping with this thick barbecue sauce can’t be beat. The recipe calls for brown sugar for a classic sweet taste and includes less sodium than commercial sauces. For a version with extra smoky flavor, use Spanish smoked paprika.
