Sunshine Barbecue Chicken

Total Time
1hr 20mins
Prep 35 mins
Cook 45 mins

This comes from the "Reynolds kitchen" and is a tried-and-true recipe in my house. One reason is because it's so easy. Another, because it is tender, juicy and full of barbecue flavor. You can also cook this in a crock pot by ommiting the oven bag and flour. Cook on low setting for 6 to 8 hours.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350º Shake flour in oven bag; place in a 13x9-inch baking dish.
  2. Add barbecue sauce and orange juice to bag.
  3. Squeeze the bag to blend ingredients.
  4. Add chicken to bag.
  5. Turn bag to coat chicken with sauce.
  6. Arrange chicken in an even layer.
  7. Close bag with nylon tie; cut 6 half-inch slits in top.
  8. Bake until chicken is tender, 45 to 50 minutes.
  9. To serve, stir sauce and spoon over chicken.

This was just ok--it didn't taste much like barbecue sauce, but DH seemed to like it. Thanks for posting, though!
