Oven Barbecued Chicken

Easy Oven Barbecued Chicken
Being a busy mom, easy meals are a must. We love our one-pot Pakistani Kima (beef curry), Shepherd’s Pie, Healthy Hamburger Helper, and Chili Mac.  One other meal we just love is this Oven Barbecued Chicken. (sorry about the poor photo….I’ll try to get a new one one of these days.)

Well, it is still pretty cold here in West Michigan, and as of two days ago there were still about 7 inches of snow on the ground.   Not quite grilling weather yet.  But that didn’t stop me from following through on satisfying a craving for barbecued chicken.

We have been trying to add more animal proteins to our family diets since my diagnosis with adrenal burnout and copper overload.  I will be posting more on this in the near future, but suffice it to say that I think that these are today’s epidemics.

As such, we have been eating more eggs, red meat, chicken and a bit of fish (please read my post on Mercury in Fish to see why it is only a “bit”.)

One of our favorite recipes is one that I just found and recreate this past week — OVEN BARBECUED CHICKEN!!

Everyone loved it so much (and I had made 2 whole chickens) that even after all of those leftovers, I did a repeat performance last night.

One of the neat things about this recipe is it put my new-found chicken cutting talents to the test.  I recently went to a demonstration by Tilling to Table at a local chapter meeting of the Weston A. Price Foundation, where I learned how to deal with a whole pastured chicken.  Well, I am embarrassed to say that until I saw it done, I had never cut up a whole chicken in my life.  So now in two weeks, I have cut up 5!

As I have mentioned before, our family is off of almost all forms of sugar, so I used alternative (as healthy as possible) sweeteners for the sauce.

The recipe for the sauce is a modified version of one from the recipe forums  on Whole Approach.

So go fire up your….uh…oven and have some great barbecue chicken anytime of year!

Here are some other favorite meals of ours:

Pakistani Beef Curry (with vegan option)
Chili Mac with other fast dinners
Kid-Friendly Indian Lentils

  7. Hi Adrienne,
    I just love having an Oven Barbecued Chicken recipe. There is always that rainy day when we can’t get out to the grill. Your recipe looks great! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you next week!

  8. Congratulations Adrienne,
    Your recipe is featured on Full Plate Thursday this week, enjoy!

  9. thanks for the recipe! Any suggestions for a replacement to the mustard powder? My daughter is allergic. Thanks!

    • Hmmm. That’s a tough one. You would try wasabi powder or horseradish powder. I am not sure that either would be easy to find or that they would work. She is allergic to mustard seeds? You may just wish to leave it out. If you think the dish needs a little “kick” you could add some hot peppers or black pepper. My guess is you’ll be fine without it.

  10. jars and canned products do not agree well with me and i avoid.
    i realllllyyy miss chicken with bbq sauce!!!
    What can i do to sub the tomato paste in this recipe?
    Do you have any recommended homemade bbq sauce recipes for chicken (without jars/cans, and without sugar/sweets/fruit [i avoid that too])

  11. i can tolerate some when fresh, but not when from a jar/can

  12. yes, only eat organic

  13. Hi, sweet friend! Just wanted to pop over to let you know that I’m sharing this delicious recipe on this week’s meal plan at The Better Mom! Hope it sends some new friends your way! Wishing you and your family a super blessed and joyous Easter! Many blessings, Kelly
