Shhhh...They Think it's a Secret

Happy 4th of July!!!! Many times during the summer if you live around where we do, you will see Nelson's Catering at family reunions, office cook outs, fundraisers, etc. selling their very yummy chicken. It's something we always look forward to treating ourselves with when the warmer months are upon us. Their chicken is absolutely some of the best I've ever had in my life and the flavor is truly unique; but I could always taste lemon in it. So the first time I came across Paula Deen's recipe for her "Daddy's Tangy Grilling Sauce" I thought maybe it would have a similar result; and low and behold I was right. It is absolutely the closest thing to Nelson's we have ever made at home. I will suggest if you can cook the chicken on a charcoal grill instead of propane, it does give it a little closer flavor to the way they prepare theirs. Hope everyone has a safe, happy holiday filled w/ good friends, happy family, and tasty food!

Tangy Grilling Sauce
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
8 TBS (1 stick) butter
Juice of 2 lemons

Mix ingredients together in small sauce pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Add to chicken once it's been seared on grill for about 2 minutes. Continue to baste w/ sauce during cooking process.
