1cuptomato purée
1teaspoondried basil
1⁄2cupchicken stock, or other rich broth
1⁄4cupworcestershire sauce
1teaspoondry mustard
1⁄2cupdry red wine


Sauté onion in the olive oil until soft. Add all the rest of the ingredients except the chicken, wine and simmer gently for 10 to 15 minutes. Add wine and heat through. Cool. Marinate the chicken in this mixture for 2 to 3 hours, turning them frequently and be sure they are well bathed.

Meanwhile prepare charcoal fire. Place the chicken halves on a rack 3 to 4 inches from the coals and charcoal broil. Arrange bone side down and broil for 12 to 15 minutes. Brush with sauce, turn, and broil for another 12 to 15 minutes.

Test for doneness by puncturing with a fork. When the juice runs clear or slightly pink, not red, the chicken is cooked.


Preparation time does not include marinating time.
