  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons molasses
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. To make the barbecue sauce: Combine blueberries, vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, molasses, allspice and cayenne pepper in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes, or until sauce is thick. Set aside, reserving 1/2 cup sauce.
  2. Meanwhile, coat the grill rack with cooking spray or line with foil; heat the grill to medium.
  3. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Place on grill bone side up and cook 15 minutes; turn and cook 10 minutes more. Brush with reserved sauce and cook until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of largest thigh registers 170 degrees. Serve with remaining sauce.
