MiMi's Oven Baked BBQ Chicken

Sometimes you get a hankering for BBQ chicken but standing over the grill isn't possible.  That's when you break out this recipe for baked BBQ chicken, it is the best way to do it indoors!

     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.

   The recipe calls for a whole chicken,  but 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.

      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 corny macaroni and cheese 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?
