Ingredients

  • 8-10 chicken drumsticks, thighs, wings and/or breasts .. approximately 3 lbs
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cup BBQ sauce

Instructions

  • To make Easy Oven Baked BBQ Chicken, start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees, line a large baking sheet with foil and if available, add a metal baking cooling rack on top and set aside. 
  • Wash and pat dry your chicken pieces and sprinkle generously with seasoning salt or salt and pepper. Add the vegetable oil to a large skillet and heat over medium high heat.  When heated, add 2 or 3 chicken pieces to the skillet, skin side down.  Let sear for 2-3 minutes without moving the chicken and once seared, remove your chicken to the baking sheet and place skin side down.  Repeat with all of your chicken pieces until all have been seared.
  • Coat your chicken generously (all sides) with your favorite BBQ sauce and bake skin side down for 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven, coat again with BBQ sauce and then flip your chicken to cook skin side up for the next 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, remove from oven, coat again with the BBQ sauce and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes or until your chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees and is no longer pink.  Remove your Easy Oven Baked BBQ Chicken from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
