Caribbean BBQ Chicken Legs

My take on a tropical BBQ flavored chicken. I made these with liquid smoke, pineapple juice, passion fruit sauce, spices and seasonings. I hope you'll enjoy it and make it your own.

4 Chicken Leg Quarters
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Powdered Chicken Bouillon
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1 Teaspoon All Purpose Seasoning

BBQ Sauce
1/2 Cup of Pineapple Juice
1/2 Cup Ketchup
2 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
4 Cloves of Garlic- Mashed
1/4 Cup of Onion- Chopped
2 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon of Passion Fruit Sauce
1 Tablespoon of Liquid Smoke
Salt to taste
1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 Cup of Water
1 Teaspoon of Cornstarch
Fresh Parsley for garnish

Season chicken with garlic, salt, pepper, all purpose and powdered chicken bouillon. Allow to marinate for at least two hours or overnight for best results. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Once heated, bake for 40-45 minutes and let stand.
In a deep saucepan, combine all of the ingredients for the sauce, except the cornstarch and half of the water and cook for 10 minutes on medium heat. Mix cornstarch with remaining water and add to the sauce to thicken. Add baked chicken to the sauce, lower the heat and simmer until the liquid reduces to a glaze, turning the chicken at least once. Remove from heat and serve with rice and veggies. Garnish with fresh parsley.
Dinner is ready. Enjoy~
