I love grilled meats and vegetables, but when my husband isn’t around to fire up the grill, I prefer to oven-roast my BBQ chicken.
Why? Because I’m scared of the grill. I’ve had one too many flare-ups that singed my eyelashes (no joke!), so I leave the grilling to someone else!
Most barbecue sauces contain ingredients that I prefer not to serve at the dinner table, so today I’ve got a homemade BBQ sauce for you as well as an easy method for oven-roasted barbecue chicken.
You can use thighs, drumsticks or breasts for this recipe. It’s best to use meat with the skin on, as it holds in the moisture and produces a juicer piece of meat. The sauce can be made a few days ahead of time and stored in the fridge until you’re ready to cook.
