Delicious Oven-Barbecued Chicken Thighs

Recipe by Lainey39

I love barbecue chicken and I love this way of baking it in the oven during the winter. I like to use chicken thighs, but you could use chicken breasts as well if you prefer those.

What a wonderful recipe. We really enjoyed this quick and easy to make dish. The chicken was super delicious, tender and juicy, while the sauce was out of this world. Thanks for sharing this winner Lainey. Made for What's on the menu? tag game 2017.

  6. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  7. Pour the mixture into the skillet and stir to combine.
  8. Simmer the sauce for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend nicely.
