  • 2 tbsp wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp tomato ketchup

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. To make the BB Q sauce, put all the ingredients in a pan with 6 tbsp water, and allow to bubble and reduce for 5 mins.

Spread out the chicken pieces on a baking tray and bake for 10 mins until tender but still juicy. Serve with the BB Q sauce and chips or salad.
