How to Make Perfect BBQ Chicken in Your Oven

Learning new cooking techniques often comes out of necessity.  For example, I LOVE BBQ chicken. However, the weather has barely broken the low teens and I'm NOT hanging outside to grill right now.  Perhaps you don't even have a grill.  Don't worry I'm about to show you How to Make Perfect BBQ Chicken In Your Oven!  

Perfectly cooked chicken that is tender and juicy and that thick sticky sauce that we all love.  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Let's Get Started!

How to Make Perfect BBQ Chicken in Your Oven:
*Prep Time: 3 min  *Cook Time: 30 min *Difficulty: Easy *Servings: 1 piece of chicken


  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • Your Favorite BBQ Sauce
To begin you will need to preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  

After that, line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and place the chicken on it.
This is an important step for clean up.  TRUST ME!

Next season the chicken with salt...

and pepper.

Place the chicken into the oven.

Roast for 20 minutes on 425.

The reason I am not adding any sauce at this point it because it will break down and become super runny in the oven during the cooking process and, well, that's not what we're going for here.

After 20 minutes you will remove the chicken from the oven.

Flip the piece of chicken over and baste the under side with your favorite BBQ sauce.

I am using Sweet Baby Ray's here, but I have THIS amazing homemade BBQ Sauce Recipe if you like!

Place back into the oven for more 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes remove the chicken again,

Baste the top of the chicken with the sauce and bake for 5 more minutes.

This is what the fully cooked chicken will look like.  You can totally stop here.  It's delicious, BUT...
We can make it better.

Take a moment and put another layer of sauce on the top of the chicken.

Next place under your broiler for a few minutes until...

The sauce get thick, sticky, and caramelized.  This is where the magic happens!

And there you have it!  How to Make Perfect BBQ Chicken in Your Oven!  This chicken is perfectly cooked, not dry at all!  The sauce is thick, sticky, and slightly charred because from the broiler!  This oven roasted bbq chicken is sure to satisfy the summer BBQer in us all!  I know your going to love it so get in the kitchen and give it a try tonight!!!

And as always,

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
