Yields 4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup mild-flavored (light) molasses
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 3 1/2- to 4-pound chicken, cut into 10 pieces (breasts halved)
  • 2 tablespoons 4-3-2-1 Spice Rub


For Barbecue Sauce

  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring often, until paste turns brick-red, about 2 minutes. Add garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne, and black pepper. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add vinegar, orange juice, brown sugar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, and 3 cups water. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any browned bits, until reduced by half, 50-60 minutes; season with salt.

For Chicken

  1. Prepare grill for medium heat. Season chicken with 4-3-2-1 Spice Rub. Grill, turning occasionally, until lightly charred, 15-20 minutes. Continue grilling, turning and basting with barbecue sauce often, until chicken is cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of thigh registers 165°F, 8-10 minutes longer.


Health Insurance Prices By State

Health Insurance Prices By State

In health insurance prices, as in the weather, Alaska and the Sun Belt are extremes. This year Alaska is the most expensive health insurance market for people who do not get coverage through their employers, while Phoenix, Albuquerque, N.M., and Tucson, Ariz., are among the very cheapest.

In this second year of the insurance marketplaces created by the federal health law, the most expensive premiums are in rural spots around the nation: Wyoming, rural Nevada, patches of inland California and the southernmost county in Mississippi, according to an analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation, which has compiled premium prices from around the country.
