Barbecued chicken from Barefoot Contessa

I made this for dinner tonight and it is one of the best barbeque sauces I have ever made!

2 chickens, quartered with backs removed (they come already cut at the grocery store)

Barbecue sauce:
1 1/2 c. chopped yellow onion
1 T. minced garlic (about 3 cloves)
1/2 c. veg oil
1 c. tomato paste
1 c. cider vinegar
1 c. honey
1/2 c. worcestershire sauce
1 c. dijon mustard
1/2 c. soy sauce
1 c. hoisin sauce
2 T. chili powder
1 T. ground cumin
1/2 T. crushed red pepper flakes

In a large saucepan on low heat, saute the onions and garlic with the veg oil for 10-15 minutes, until the onions are translucent, but not browned. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer uncovered on low heat for 30 minutes. Use immediately or store in refrigerator.

Marinate chicken pieces in 2/3 of sauce for 2 hours to overnight. (reserve some sauce for basting). Cook on grill on low heat until done. (about 45 minutes).

***This sauce is really yummy, but we had trouble with it burning on our grill due to the long cooking time. Next time, I will just use boneless, skinless chicken for a shorter cooking time so the sauce doesn't burn.
