Oven Barbecued Chicken



Barbecue Sauce:


  1. If you are making homemade barbecue sauce prepare anywhere from 1 to 24 hours before baking your chicken.
  2. Preheat the oven to to 350°.
  3. Set aside ½ cup of the barbecue sauce in a small bowl.
  4. Mix the salt and pepper together in a small bowl or prep dish.
  5. Rinse off the chicken parts and pat dry with paper towels.
  6. Rub the chicken parts with the salt and pepper mixture.
  7. Heat the oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet.
  8. Fry the chicken parts for about 5 minutes per side, or until a nice golden brown. To prevent crowding, fry the parts in batches.
  9. Transfer the fried chicken parts, meat side up, to a shallow baking dish. A large rectangular roaster works well for this.
  10. Using a spoon or a basting brush, spread 1 cup of barbecue sauce on top of the chicken parts.
  11. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until a fork pierces the thickest part of the meat easily.
  12. Serve with the extra ½ cup of barbecue sauce on the side.
