First of all, I can’t begin to tell you how much my family and I enjoy a good BBQ. Therefore my husband fires up our grill just as soon as the weather permits. Alas, today is not one of those days because it’s SNOWING! No worries! That just makes today a good day to stay tucked indoors and make this tasty Baked BBQ Chicken!!!

One of our favorite things to BBQ on the grill is chicken legs. Probably because they are easy to grill, perfect for our small grandchildren and something they can eat with their hands. As a result, we seem to make this recipe a lot!
To make Baked BBQ Chicken I recommend using our homemade recipe for Grandma King’s Homemade BBQ Sauce. This is my all-time favorite BBQ sauce because it’s gluten-free, plus the recipe is easy to tweak to give it more or less sweetness and more or less kick.
- Allows air to circulate under food.
- Leaves food juicy and evenly cooked.
- Rolls up for easy storage.
- Can be cut to the size you need and used as a non-skid base or trivet.
- Withstands up to 428 degrees of heat.
- Dishwasher safe and microwave safe.
- Measures 16.25-inches x 11.5-inches.
- Silicone is non-stick.
- Is fat reducing because grease and drippings stay on the bottom of the baking mat so your food turns out light and crispy (especially breaded foods).
Because this baking technique works so well, feel free to use other cuts of chicken such as thighs, wings, or breast. Just remember to adjust your baking time because various cuts of meat require different cooking times. Rather than guessing, I like to use a meat thermometer to make sure chicken is fully cooked to the recommended temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. There’s nothing worse than serving under-cooked meat and consequently, it’s not safe to eat either! So take extra precaution and always check.
Personally, I like to serve Bake BBQ Chicken along with Strawberry Spinach Salad, fluffy baked potatoes, and green beans or Brussel Sprouts with Bacon. If I have time I will also make a batch of Cream Cheese Biscuits or Zucchini Muffins. Gosh, I’m getting hungry just talking about all of this wonderful food!
While there are many great chicken recipes floating around on Pinterest, this recipe for Baked BBQ Chicken is a personal favorite. Most of all, it’s a great versatile recipe so feel free to add other spices and seasonings to the mix.
