Blueberry BBQ Sauce – On Chicken

The original concept for this BBQ sauce was for salmon, yes, salmon but I ended up willy nilly making this for chicken that I had to use up.  You might think it would be sweet and syrupy but it has a nice balance of sweet, acid, and just enough heat to make it supper good.  The blueberries are apparent but not overwhelming.

Blueberry BBQ Sauce on Chicken

mmm good

  • ½ cup blueberry preserve
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 1 shallot diced
  • 1 clove of garlic diced
  • 4 – 6 oz. ipa beer (I used Red Hook Longhammer)
  • 2 Tbls. red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire
  • 1 tsp. Chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. cayenne or more

In a sauce pan over medium high heat with a glug of olive oil and shallots and garlic, let soften for 8 or so minutes.  Add all the wet ingredients and stir well to combine, then add the rest of the ingredients, stir to combine.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Take off heat and let cool for 10 minutes, then wiz up in a blender or a food processer until smooth.   Use right away or keep in fridge for up to 4 days.  Use on chicken or pork.


I marinated chicken in the BBQ sauce for several hours and grilled as I usually do which is place on grill, flip, put more BBQ sauce on cook, flip and repeat a few more times until cooked through.
