Impress your friends and family with this mouthwatering, finger licking good barbecue chicken breast recipe. It is very tasty and super easy to make. Chicken breasts are smothered in homemade barbecue sauce and baked in the oven.
Chicken breast sometimes considered to be safe and unexciting choice but not this recipe. It is amazingly moist, sweet and juicy. Every bite of this chicken is a bursting with barbecue flavor. Homemade barbecue sauce is a show stopper. You can make in ahead of time and then use when you are ready. But If you don’t feel like going through the trouble of making the sauce from scratch, you can absolutely substitute for the store bought one.
Marinating the chicken is an essential step in making this dish fantastic. It adds lots of extra flavors and moisture to the chicken breast and helps to tenderize it.
I also prefer using bone-in chicken breasts. The bones help with keeping the chicken breasts from drying out and pack a powerful flavor punch as well. I do remove the skin.
The bone-in chicken breast is baked in the oven and brushed with barbecue sauce with 5 minutes intervals resulting in a thick, lusciously sweet glaze on the outside. This baking technique is truly foolproof. During warm-weather months however I love doing the same recipe on the grill. Nothing can beat those beautiful grilled marks. I place the chicken on a foil over the grill gate and baste the chicken with barbecue sauce. It comes out percent every time.
This no- fail barbecue chicken breast recipe is a true crowd pleaser. Everyone loves it, kids and adults alike. It pairs great with anything from vegetables to coleslaw to rice. Wonderful idea for a cook out, very inexpensive and easy to make but is a powerhouse of flavors.
