New Years Chicken

OK, this came out pretty good, though I am not much of a bbq sauce expert, so I might have committed some sort of sacrilege, I don't know...but I like it.

First off, like I said I'm not a bbq sauce aficionado, but I bought a few different sauces at Trader Joe's to give them a taste. The main house brand bbq sauce tasted darn good to me. One of the other sauces I tried was their mole sauce. This I didn't like. I could swear I tasted cinnamon in there (which I hate), though there was none listed on the lable.

The mole sauce did have some overtones I liked however, and I thought there was even some flavors that would kinda match the bbq sauce, so I mixed some different ratios and found that they did go well together.

So here, I've dumped the entire bottle of the TJ's bbq sauce on the chicken, and then added a half bottle of the mole sauce:

Then I mixed it all together to marinate overnight...another bbq sin I suppose (using it as a marinade as opposed to baste).

The next day I drained and squeezed it off. You never want a soup of marinade when broiling, frying, or grilling. Also because with this kind of sauce/marinade you really have to keep an eye out for burning.

And here it is broiled, done, and resting. Super easy and tasty!

there is cinnamon in most mole.
