Oven Baked BBQ Chicken Recipe

Per the Menu, we had the Oven Baked BBQ Chicken for dinner Sunday night. I really like this recipe and leftovers freeze quite well. The bbq sauce for this recipe is thin as opposed to the more common thicker and sticky sauces. I also enjoy the vinegar twang. The chicken has always cooked up very tender. In other words, this is one of our keeper recipes that we enjoy from time to time. You can easily adjust the recipe to account for a sweeter taste or thicker sauce.

Oven Baked Barbeque Chicken

1/4: Cup water
1/4: Cup plus 2 Tablespoons ketchup
1/4: Cup plus 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4: Cup apple cider vinegar
1/4: Cup worcestershire sauce
2: Tablespoons lemon or lime juice
2: Teaspoons sea salt
2: Teaspoons dry mustard
2: Teaspoons chili powder
1/2: Teaspoon onion powder
1/2: Teaspoon garlic powder
1/2: Teaspoon cayenne pepper
6-8 : Skinless chicken breasts or 12-16 skinless chicken thighs or a combination.


1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees (F)
2. Using small saucepan over medium heat; stir together all the ingredients. Bring to a low boil. Turn off heat, remove from burner. Cover and let sauce sit for 15 minutes.
3. Place chicken pieces into an oblong baking dish, pour the sauce over your chicken.
4. Cover tightly with foil.
5. Bake at 500 degrees (F) for 15 minutes.
6. Reduce oven temp to 300 degrees (F), bake for an additional 1 hour.
7. Remove foil cover, baste and bake uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.

Enjoy... with your favorite sides. I may have to revisit the Menu. My fellow diners have informed me that they are fearing a certain increased caloric intake that may present a problem. Namely - gaining too much weight! I've been ask to consider more "salad" nights as before. Before, as in, before my retirement... Oh well, Salty Dog and I will just have to spend more time on the river. (as opposed to my to-do list)
