We don't have a grill at the moment, so anything I want barbequed or charred I do up using my broiler. This recipe for chicken can easily be made in the winter months when you don't feel like venturing out into the snow, but you're craving some crisp sweet and spicy chicken.
Beth's Oven BBQ Chicken
1 whole chicken, cut into parts, or 1 pkg of your favorite chicken parts
1-2 tbsp coarse seasoned salt (like Tastefully Simple's; amount depends on how much chicken you have)
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (we use Sweet Baby Ray's)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place your chicken skin side up in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle a fine layer of seasoned salt over each piece of chicken and rub in lightly. For 6 thighs I bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Place the chicken on a baking sheet sprayed with oil, skin side down. Preheat the broiler to High. Baste the cut side well with BBQ sauce. Broil on High for 5 minutes. Turn the chicken and liberally coat the skin side with BBQ sauce. Broil for another 5 minutes (warning: the broiler might smoke up at this point, so be careful when removing the pan). Let the chicken rest for 10-12 minutes before serving. It'll be perfectly juicy and crisp! :)
