While the weather is getting hot, I’m so glad it’s grilling season again. Nobody wants to cook in a hot kitchen. But firing up the grill and cooking food in your backyard is great fun! Today I’m going to introduce a super simple pineapple sauce that takes no time to make. It is a sweet and sour sauce that is sticky and smoky. The perfect sauce for chicken!

To make this amazing sauce, you need to get the NEW Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub (Original flavor) at Walmart. You can find it in the condiment aisle, near the other KC Masterpiece® BBQ sauces. The box contains two envelopes of dry rub. You can use this spice blend to make BBQ sauce, dry rub, or marinade. Next time you’re at Walmart, don’t forget to grab some chicken wings and canned pineapple, so you have everything you need for this recipe.

In this recipe, we use half of the rub to season the chicken, so it will crisp nicely on the grill with tons of flavor. We use the other half to make a scrumptious sauce, with the simple addition of pineapple juice, lemon juice, and sliced pineapple. Simply mix everything together, and you’ll have a sweet, sour, sticky sauce in a minute. Yes, it’s that easy!

If you like the simplicity and flavor of this spice blend, make sure you also check out their other delicious flavors: Sweet Honey and Spice Habanero. You can tweak the flavors and customize your sauce with water, juice, soda, beer, or even bourbon. So every meal will be different and delicious.

Don’t want to grill the wings? You can cook them in the oven, too. Preheat your oven to 400 F. Season the wings by following the recipe and bake them for 45 minutes. You can toss the cooked wings in the sauce and serve them.

The recipe works with other cuts too, such as chicken thighs, breasts, and drumsticks. Follow the recipe and adjust the cooking time according to the cut you’re using, and you’ll have a delicious dinner in no time!
