Low-Carb BBQ Sauce

Yesterday was the hubby’s birthday. He has now caught up to me! I was having trouble deciding what to prepare for dinner last night and finally decided to do something with chicken. One of our grocery stores had chicken breasts on sale, so I was able to get several packages for a great price. Barbecue chicken was sounding pretty good to me.

Since we’ve been trying to eat the Trim Healthy way for over a year now, I have not bought any barbecue sauce. Most of the BBQ sauces on the market today are full of high fructose corn syrup. If you do some research, you will discover that high fructose corn syrup is NOT good for the body!

I did a little web searching and found this recipe that I thought I could work with since I had most of the ingredients on-hand.

I had no unseasoned tomato sauce, but I did have a small can of tomato paste. I mixed it with water to get my tomato sauce. Probably should have used less of it, but it turned out ok.

The recipe also calls for a chicken wing sauce. I asked Sam which of the hot sauces that we have would be the best for this recipe, and he pulled one out for me. He did warn me to be careful and not use a lot since it is very hot. I cut back on the amount, but it was still too hot for me. Thankfully, Tim and the boys don’t mine hot and spicy foods!

For the sweetener, I used a THM friendly truvia instead of Splenda.
