I’ve had this recipe pinned for awhile and finally tried it a couple weeks ago. The recipe is from Cooking with K and promises “real grill taste” in oven baked chicken. Her secret is simply baking the chicken in a cast iron pan and it is by far the best oven barbecued chicken we’ve ever made!
K has a wonderful post with beautiful photos and I will refer you to her for the original recipe. I only made a 1/2 recipe, as 10 chicken breasts were more than we needed. Also. I had to make a couple substitutions… I couldn’t find the Montreal seasoning and substituted Paula Deen’s house seasoning. And we already had KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce, so I used that instead of Sweet Baby Ray’s. My changes are below:
Oven Baked BBQ Chicken
5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (rinsed and patted dry)
1 teaspoon Paula Deen House Seasoning
1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
~Preheat oven to 375 degrees
~Spray a 12-inch cast iron skillet with non stick cooking spray; set aside.
~Season chicken with house seasoning.
~Place the chicken in the cast iron skillet and bake for 45 minutes.
~Remove from the oven and generously spoon barbecue sauce over each piece of chicken.
~Turn the oven up to 425 degrees and return the chicken to the oven.
~Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until chicken is done and barbecue sauce has thickened and slightly browned.
Hope you enjoy this BBQ chicken as much as we did!
