Tasty Taco Chicken Grill
1 broiler chicken; cut in part
1 small onion; minced
8 oz spanish-style tomato sauce
4 oz taco sauce
1/4 cup molasses
2 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon oregano leaves
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup jack cheese; shredded (opt)

Lay out chicken parts in baking dish and bake in 350~ oven for 40 min. Cool them a bit and pour sauce (method below) over the chicken, cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least an hour, or overnight would be better.

When ready to grill, drain excess sauce and reserve. Place chicken on prepared grill, skin side up, about 8" from heat. Grill, turning a few times, for about 20 minutes or until fork can be inserted with ease. Brush generously with reserved sauce during 20 minutes of grilling.

When chicken is done, place on platter; top with remaining sauce and sprinkle with cheese, if you like. Sauce: In small saucepan, make sauce by mixing together onion, tomato sauce, taco sauce, molasses, vinegar, oil, salt, oregano, and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat and cool 2 minutes.
