With Labor Day approaching, everyone is saying goodbye to BBQ’ing with big parties and feasts. Even grocery stores get in on the action by having great sales on ribs and other delicious items to throw on the grill. Thankfully here in Southern California, we can BBQ all year. Labor Day is just another reason to buy charcoal and have friends and family come over for dinner. This year, we opted not to do ribs, but have grilled chicken instead!
Since I’m not ready to say goodbye to Summer or any of it’s fabulous flavors quite yet, I decided to pair our chicken with a Blueberry Bourbon BBQ Sauce! I created this recipe using great ingredients from our local Vom Fass store and shared it in my monthly column “Sara’s Kitchen Adventures” at IEShineOn! For those of you who may be new to my blog, I write and post here, but I also have a monthly column for a local website called “Sara’s Kitchen Adventures!” In it, I am blessed to travel to farms, Mom and Pop stores, bakeries and a variety of small business, food-centered stores in my area, talk to the owners, get to know them a little bit, then I go home and create a recipe to share using one or more ingredients from whatever store/business I visited. It’s a dream job and I love all the local people I’ve been fortunate enough to meet over the last year. I hope you try this BBQ sauce. It really is fabulous and it’s one of my new favorite things to put on chicken! Do you want to follow along on Sara’s Kitchen Adventures? You can!
