Your recipe saved the day! I was about to barbecue some chicken drumsticks when I realized my gas grill was out of gas! So, I went to my trusty ol' Zaar site and found your recipe. I had already par-boiled my chicken so I only had to cook the chicken for a total of 1/2 hour. Everyone loved the chicken! Thank you for sharing what I call "Save the day barbecued chicken!"


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees/.
  2. Butterfly the chicken and place inside up on a baking dish (I use a large pie dish).
  3. Spread 1/2 of the barbecue sauce over the topside of the chicken.
  4. Bake 1/2 hour.
  5. Turn chicken over and add the remaining barbecue sauce.
  6. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  7. Cook 1/2 hour longer.
