Colin Fassnidge’s best BBQ chicken sauce recipe

What you’ll need for your BBQ chicken sauce:

  • Tomatoes (ideally on the vine)
  • Red capsicum (or peppers)
  • Spring onion
  • Mixed leaves
  • Lemon
  • Capers
  • Parsley
  • Basil
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chicken

Directions for your BBQ chicken sauce:

  1. Take tomatoes and peppers and throw them straight on the BBQ “to get a little char on there”. Fassnidge recommended roasting tomatoes on the vine if you can.
  2. Get mixed leaves to build a salad base and toss that in a bowl.
  3. BBQ your chicken to your taste.
  4. Mix capers, parsley, basil, caper juice, spring onion tops, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mash in your tomatoes and capsicum, and add in a healthy squeeze of lemon juice.
  5. Mix together well and pour over your chicken.
