What are the options when you don't have a BBQ pit or grill that is readily available but you have a certain hankering for that yummy, BBQ flavor? Do it in your oven! Although nothing beats the smoky, char-grilled flavor you get from the outdoors, this method still tastes pretty good and will satisy your cravings.
For this recipe, I used the Hawaiian Chip Company's new Kilauea Fire Hawaiian Style BBQ Sauce that I discovered at this year's Winter Fancy Food Show. It's the perfect combination of tangy and sweet with just the right amount of heat.
See how simple this recipe is? Just two ingredients. It's so simple I was going to call it easy oven barbecued chicken, but I didn't want y'all to think that you'd be cooking this in one of those little easy ovens with the light bulb heat source.
OVEN BARBECUED CHICKEN
4 chicken leg quarters (thigh and drumstick together)
1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2) Place the leg quarters on a foil-lined rimmed cookie sheet. Brush the tops of the leg quarters with about 1/3 cup of the barbecue sauce.
3) Bake for 25 minutes. Flip over and brush with another 1/3 cup of the barbecue sauce.
4) Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
5) Flip over once more and brush with the remaining 1/3 cup of barbecue sauce.
6) Broil the chicken for an additional 8-10 minutes, or until it is charred to your liking.
Makes 4 servings.
Ed's Note: A great side dish for this is my garlic potato salad.
