Southern Baked Barbecue Chicken (Bone In Split Breast)

Please Share Y'all!

Classic Southern Baked BBQ Chicken is one of those meals most of us grew up with. It’s a popular and easy way to prepare supper. Serve alongside coleslaw, baked beans and corn on the cob…..can’t you just taste it!

I prepared this chicken with my homemade Old Fashioned BBQ Sauce but you can certainly use your favorite bottled sauce too. I have to say there is something special about the super easy homemade sauce though. It seems to adhere very well to the chicken while baking and results in beautiful baked barbecue chicken.

Ingredients

Preheat oven to 425℉.
Arrange chicken breast pieces, skin side up,  on a foil lined baking sheet or in a large casserole dish.
Season each side of the chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika.

How to Make Barbecue Chicken at Home

Place the chicken into the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes until the skin begins to crisp.
Turn the oven temperature down to 375℉. Remove chicken from oven and brush on a layer of the barbecue sauce to the bottom and top sides. Return to the oven, skin side up.

Southern BBQ Chicken Recipe

 
Bake the chicken an additional 30-40 minutes, basting the top side with additional sauce every 10 minutes. Chicken is done when the juices run clear and have an internal temperature of 165℉.

    Regarding the BBQ sauce it says 1/4. Is that a cup, tablespoon or teaspoon?

    Made it and it came out perfectly-had to go with 40min on the backside but it was still juicy and perfect. Thanks

    Looks amazing! Neither of the bbq sauce links work. They both go to a blank page

      Thank you! Sorry about that…I’m not sure what happened with the links but I re-inserted them so they should be working fine now.
