Easy Barbecue Chicken...No Matter the Weather
Recipe type: Main Dish, Poultry
Cuisine: American
  • Chicken pieces (I used 3 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts this time around)
  • Canola Oil
  • Salt
  • Barbecue Sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Salt the outside of the chicken. Sear chicken until browned. Transfer to a cookie sheet/roasting pan/baking pan/whatever you’ve got! Brush with barbecue sauce. Bake in oven until chicken reaches 165 degrees, brushing on a second layer of sauce about halfway through baking time. Total baking time was about 1 hour.
  3. Here is the key to this recipe: use your thermometer! I have an electric Pyrex thermometer with a probe attached to a long wire. I can keep the probe in the meat throughout cooking and set the thermometer to beep at me when the meat reaches 165 degrees. I put the thermometer in the smallest chicken breast. It beeped, I removed that piece of chicken from the oven and then put the thermometer in the middle-sized chicken breast”¦five minutes later it beeped and I took that piece of chicken out. Then I put the thermometer in the third, largest chicken breast and it took another 5 minutes to finish. All three pieces came out nice and juicy”¦I was SO glad I used this technique.
