     Bbq chicken doesn’t have to be done on the grill. You can make tender and flavorful chicken in the oven as well. This recipe helps you get that delicious bbq flavor on the table no matter the weather.

   MiMi makes this recipe when she is in the mood for BBQ chicken,but it is too cold outside to grill.  It turns out really tasty and is really easy.

   MiMi’s recipe calls for a whole chicken broken down into its pieces.  I never make it that way. I almost always use single parts.

       Sometimes we use split chicken breasts like in these pictures. We also like using chicken thighs.

      Little Dude’s favorite is when we just have chicken drumsticks. It’s handy when your food comes with a built in handle.

       We prefer to use bone in, skin on pieces of chicken, but you can use boneless skinless.  Just reduce the baking time.

       If you have a good nonstick baking pan, it makes clean up easier. I used my Swiss Diamond roasting pan and the cooked on bbq sauce wiped out easily.

      We have a few favorite sides to serve with bbq. On this particular day we had our favorite corn casserole and some roasted green beans.

       I will share the recipe for the green beans soon. Slow cooker macaroni and cheese with corn or instant pot shells and cheese would be more great side dish options.

        If you find yourself with leftovers, we love bbq chicken pizza or quesadillas. You could also easily make a chicken version of the pulled pork rice skillet supper.

       Now you can enjoy the taste of sticky delicious bbq any time! What are your favorite ways to make chicken?

Another one of our favorites is easy marinated chicken. It can be cooked in the oven or on the grill for a tasty dinner. Or make some cheese cracker chicken tenders for another fun and easy meal.

I will be trying this soon! I honestly don't know the last time I had bbq chicken, and I have never made it in the oven. Great idea, I'm excited to try it!

I personally don't love barbecued anything, but my family does. This looks like a pretty simple method to get a good barbecued chicken.

This is similar to mine Just heads up on store bought BBQ sauce and the sugar content. Some of the brands have a lot of sugar Mary Lou
