Healthy BBQ Chicken

Hi everybody, I’m Tiffany and I blog over at Creme de la Crumb! I am so excited to be sharing some of my recipes with you here on Lil Luna! I love creating simple and delicious meals for my husband and myself. I love to keep them easy and healthy whenever possible.

I’m a huge fan of 30 minute meals that please both me and my husband, and don’t break the bank. This Baked BBQ Chicken is so easy, it comes together in a few minutes and tastes tangy and sweet and SO good!

You can whip up the sauce, pour it over some chicken breasts, pop it in the oven and you’re done! Just have to be patient for about 20 minutes while the chicken cooks to juicy perfection! That’s what I call an amazing weeknight meal. Healthy, delicious, easy, inexpensive, and made right in your kitchen any time of year! Yum!

How to make Homemade BBQ Chicken

Preheat oven to 375 and lightly grease a shallow baking dish with cooking spray.

BBQ SAUCE. Whisk together Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and next seven ingredients. Pour ⅓ of sauce into prepared baking dish. Place chicken in a single layer on top of sauce. Pour ⅓ of remaining sauce over chicken.

BAKE. Bake chicken 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Top chicken with remaining sauce if desired and serve hot with preferred sides. Enjoy!

CROSS CONTAMINATION. Be careful of cross contamination when putting the sauce on top of uncooked chicken. If you use a utensil to spread the sauce on the uncooked chicken then put that utensil back in the bowl with the sauce, it will be contaminated. To avoid this, pour the sauce on top of the raw chicken (without touching it) and if you use a utensil to spread the sauce then do not put that utensil in the bowl with the sauce.

Can I use different chicken cuts in this recipe? Yes, you can use whichever cut you would like. Thighs, wings, drumsticks and breasts all make great bbq chicken.

Cooking time will vary depending on what type you use. Bone-in cuts and dark meat like legs and thighs will take longer to cook.

How to store leftovers? Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

  1. Delicious!! My whole family are making 2014 healthy eating year and hopefully changing some very bad eating habits. Thanks for the great recipe!!

  2. I have this in the oven now. I tasted the sauce and it had way too much vinegar and I didn’t even use the entire 1/2cup. I looked at the recipe many times to see if I had made a mistake. I ended up adding more brown sugar and more ketchup to try to even it out. I’m hoping that the vinegar cooks out.
