Simple Oven Baked BBQ Bone-in Skin-on (Split) Chicken Breast from 101 Cooking For Two

A simple method for a great oven baked BBQ chicken breast. This requires a cooking skill level of 2/10. You can do it.

Preheat. Cut chicken. Bake Chicken. Baste with sauce. Cook a few more minutes. Baste and serve. With guaranteed results.

I have not had a good cooking spring. 12 hour work days do not a cooking blog make. Add in a few cooking failures, and what you see is what you get.

This recipe is somewhat inspired by a Pioneer Woman post or at least a little of the method and the idea of having BBQ chicken was. I had the chicken but wanted something different. I haven’t made any Memphis BBQ sauce this spring so her method (kind of) and my sauce. Yep it worked just fine.

This could be a 5 if your really like BBQ.

Notes: Use the BBQ sauce of your choice. I used my My Memphis  BBQ Sauce  which I love. Cooks Illustrated likes Bulls Eye Original. My Gates BBQ of KC sauce would also be great.

Start with preheating oven to 425 convection. I started my Memphis sauce at the same time.
