This is another fairly simple chicken recipe that I make from time to time.
Oven BBQ Chicken
- 2-3 lbs chicken (can be legs, thighs, breasts, boneless or bone-in, skin-on or skinless — just note that bone-in chicken will take longer to cook.)
- melted butter or olive oil
- salt and pepper, to taste
- bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
Preheat oven to 450.
Grease a large baking dish. I like to line mine with foil and spray it with nonstick cooking spray to make for easier cleanup.
Wash and trim the chicken. Pat dry with a paper towel.
Coat the chicken with melted butter or olive oil. Place in the pan.
Season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 15 minutes at 450 to get a good browning on the chicken.
Reduce heat to 350 and cook another 15-45 minutes until the juices run clear.
About 15-20 minutes before finished cooking pour the BBQ sauce over the chicken and continue baking.
Remove from the oven and let sit 5-10 minutes before serving.
