Prepare a medium-hot grill or preheat the broiler. If using the broiler, line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste.
Put the chicken on the grill or, if broiling, put it on the prepared baking sheet. Grill or broil, 4 inches from the heat, turning once, for 10 minutes per side.
Put 1/2 of the BBQ sauce in a small bowl, for drizzling and serving. Reserve.
Baste the chicken with the remaining sauce and grill or broil for 5 minutes more.
Transfer the chicken to a serving platter, drizzle with some of the reserved sauce, and serve with lime wedges and the remaining reserved sauce.
In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, onion, mustard, hot sauce, and black pepper. Stir in the scallions, lime zest, and lime juice. Can be covered and refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Recommended wine: Zinfandel, Sparkling Rose
Barbecue Chicken works really well with Zinfandel and Sparkling rosé. Fruity, low tannin zinfandel is great for any sticky, saucy barbecue chicken dish. If you're not feeling red wine, a sparkling rosé will work too. You could try Artezin Mendocino Zinfandel. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 17 dollars per bottle.
Artezin Mendocino ZinfandelA dark garnet, almost brooding Vermillion red color is striking in theglass, much richer and deeper than previous vintages. Aromas of red fruits dominate, showing pomegranate, cherry and boysenberry, accented by white pepper and cedary oak spice. Flavors bring a smile, truly ‘Zinny’ led by raspberry and loganberry nicely presented with allspice and classic Zinfandel spice character. This wine is almost plush, round and coating, with fine grain tannins and a decidedly long finish, suggesting the potential for aging with further complexities and nuances yet to be revealed. Still, this will bring a smile of immediate satisfaction, particularly when paired with robust grilled meats, rich pastas such as Rigatoni Bolognese, hearty stews and artisan cheeses.
