Honey & garlic make the perfect combination in this rich and thick barbecue sauce recipe.
This sauce tastes best on grilled chicken and shrimp which are fairly flavor neutral and really absorb the flavors.
The unmistakable barbecue honey and garlic flavors take plain foods like this and gives them a sweet rich taste.
I also use this recipe on both this Chicken Breast recipe as well as this very tasty barbecue Garlic Shrimp recipe.
You'll also find the more traditional Sticky Honey Garlic Sauce recipe here.
That recipe is the sticky variety used most often on Honey Garlic Chicken Wings.Home › BBQ Sauce › Honey-Garlic Barbecue Sauce Recipe

What you'll need:
In a medium saucepan combine all of the ingredients from the list above except the optional cornstarch and water shown.
For best results simmer this barbecue sauce recipe at a gentle boil over medium-low heat for about 30 minutes.
Optional: if you'd like this a little thicker then combine the corn starch and water in a small bowl and stir with a fork until it forms a smooth paste.
Add this paste to the pot and stir well to mix in.
Continue simmering another 5 minutes or so until it turns to your desired thickness. Stir occasionally.
If it gets too thick add a little water, a bit at a time until you are happy with the consistency.
Allow the sauce to cool and pour into a resealable glass jar and refrigerate until needed.
This barbecue sauce will keep well in the refrigerator for several weeks.
