Chicken Recipes: Oven-Barbecue Chicken–No Grilling Needed!

Watch as Better Homes and Gardens shows you how to make oven-barbecue chicken! This chicken recipe is great for when you can’t get to a grill. To start your oven-barbecue chicken, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil. Bake 4 pounds of meaty chicken pieces bone side up for 35 minutes, using a mixture of skinless breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks. For the barbecue sauce recipe, combine 1 cup of chopped onion, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, 2 tablespoons of kosher salt, and 1/4 cup of melted butter or margarine. Cook this mixture for 10 to 15 minutes until tender, adding 1 tablespoon of paprika, 1 tablespoon of chili powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper. Cook this spicy barbecue sauce for 1 minute. Add 1 1/2 cups of water, 1 cup of cider vinegar, 1 cup packed dark brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of Worcester sauce. Stir this homemade barbecue sauce and bring to a boil, whisking it with 1 cup of tomato paste and 1/4 cup molasses until smooth after boiling. Simmer and reduce this for 15 to 20 minutes, brushing it over the chicken–bone side down now. Bake the chicken for another 10 to 15 minutes until it is tender, falling off of the bone, and the barbecue sauce is caramelizing. Once you know how to barbecue chicken, this easy chicken recipe is perfect for a delicious dinner your family will love!
