Cary Grant's Barbecued Chicken

Updated: May 9, 2022

Not in the mood for turkey this Thanksgiving? Why not try Cary's barbecued chicken?! He says don't blame him if it's not to your liking, but I bet it will be! 📽 👨‍🍳 🐓

Cut the chickens into serving pieces and brown in fat, using no flour. Salt and pepper to taste while cooking. Then, combine one cup tomato ketchup, one-half cup water, one-fourth cup A-1 sauce, one-fourth cup sugar, one-fourth cup cider vinegar, one chopped onion and one clove of garlic chopped very fine. After the chickens have been browned, place in a roaster, pour this sauce over them, cover and bake in a moderate oven (300 degrees) until tender. If the sauce needs thickening, add a little corn starch mixed with cold water and cook until starch is thoroughly done.

"Now go to it, friends, and don't blame me if it is not to your liking. For after all, the recipe is not mine. It is the national prize winner of the year and I happen to like it."

Three 1 & 1/2 lb. chickens

1 cup tomato ketchup

1/2 cup worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup A-1 sauce

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup cider vinegar

1 chopped onion

1 clove garlic (chopped)

Having a bite of Hitchcock's Quiche Lorraine, in "To Catch a Thief," 1955.

A nice seafood salad never did a body any harm.

Eva Marie, what can I get you?

"Everyone wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant."
