Pork Chops with "Bourbon" Barbecue Sauce

I found this recipe and tweaked it a bit... You can also use chicken thighs in place of the pork chops. My family loved it!

4 thick-cut pork chops (or 2 lbs chicken thighs, boneless or bone-in)
salt and pepper
1/2 cup ketchup
1/8 cup apple juice mixed with 1/4 tsp vanilla extract*
1 1/2 tbsp light brown sugar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dry mustard powder

Season the meat with salt and pepper and place in freezer bag. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Seal and freeze.

To cook: Thaw in refrigerator overnight. Preheat oven to 400. Coat shallow roasting pan with cooking spray and place meat on it. Roast for 30-35 minutes, or until cooked through.

*You can also use 1/8 cup bourbon.
