Heinz BBQ Sauces

New Heinz ‘Classic’ and ‘Sticky’ Barbecue Sauces 

Well its been a bit wet out recently, but I hope that hasn't stopped you from getting together and having a good old British BBQ!

Heinz is ensuring the unreliable British weather doesn’t dampen spirits by introducing new members of the Heinz sauce family which can be enjoyed all year round - Heinz Classic Barbecue Sauce and Heinz Sticky Barbecue Sauce.

We BBQ quite a lot, luckily we have a pull out shelter that keeps us and the food dry ... so I have had a lot of fun reviewing and tasting some new sauces from Heinz.

New Heinz Barbecue Sauces have been made with families in mind, they’re easy to use and can be used in a variety of tasty meals. No longer just for burgers and barbecues, Heinz Barbecue Sauces add a squeeze of excitement and tongue-tingling taste to every meal - particularly chicken dishes, which the sauces complement beautifully.

We tried the Sticky BBQ Sauce on some chicken wings, I followed the recipe and coated the chicken, we left it in the sauce for around 30 minutes (covered and in the fridge) then BBQ'd it till cooked through.  This was the first time I used the sauce so I added all the extra ingredients listed in the recipe below - they were delicious!!!  (I am sorry if the photo is a little blurry as I had to take it using my phone).

Sticky Marinated Chicken Wings
Serves 4

For the marinade:
10 chicken wings, tips removed and cut in half
A sprinkle of hot chilli powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp runny honey
5 tbsp Heinz Classic Barbecue sauce, and extra to serve
To serve:
400g potato wedges, cooked
75g mixed salad leaves
Parsley or red chilli, chopped

·          Place the chicken wings into a large food bag with the remaining ingredients apart from 2 tablespoons of the Heinz Classic Barbecue sauce and toss together.
·          Seal the bag and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
·          Place on a rack over a baking tray and cook in a preheated 200C, fan 180C, gas 6 oven for 30 minutes, turning half way.
·          Turn the oven up to 240C, fan 220C, gas 9. Brush the wings with the remaining sauce on both sides and bake for a further 10 minutes until sticky.
·          Serve with a pot of Heinz Classic Barbecue sauce to dip the wings into, jacket wedges and leaf salad and garnish the wings with chopped parsley or chopped red chilli for extra spice  

From then on I became lazy and just used the sauce as a brush-on marinade, it was equally as nice and we found that the kids preferred the sauce straight from the bottle rather than with the extra ingredients - us adults preferred the 'posher' version as it had a little more depth to it.

Both the ‘Classic’ and ‘Sticky’ sauces have been created to be thick enough to dip your favourite foods in, yet light enough to be used in mouth watering marinades. Heinz Classic Barbecue Sauce is rich and smokey, perfect for dipping, whereas Heinz Sticky Barbecue Sauce has a gloriously thick texture and Summery flavour, and immediately gives a welcome lift to meals like marinated chicken pieces.

Marinade, dip and cook with Heinz Barbecue Sauce ‘Classic’ or ‘Sticky’ to bring some excitement to tea time. Heinz Barbecue Sauces will sit perfectly in your kitchen cupboard alongside your other Heinz condiments.
