Sauce and Chicken

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
24 chicken drumsticks, skin removed

Hot Horseradish Dip

1 (16-ounce) carton (2 cups) sour cream
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Mustard Dip

1 (16-ounce) carton (2 cups) sour cream
1/4 cup country-style Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar


Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan until sizzling; add onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat 1-2 minutes or until onion is crisply tender. Add tomatoes with juice. Stir in all remaining sauce ingredients except chicken drumsticks. Reduce heat to low; cook 1 hour.

Meanwhile, combine all horseradish dip ingredients in medium bowl. Combine all mustard dip ingredients in another medium bowl. Cover each; refrigerate until serving time.

Heat 1 side of gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Place coals to 1 side in charcoal grill. Make aluminum foil drip pan; place opposite heat. Place chicken onto grill over drip pan. Grill, turning occasionally, 7 minutes. Continue grilling, basting occasionally with sauce, 6-8 minutes or until chicken is fork tender and juices run clear. Serve chicken hot or cold with dips.
