Barbeque Chicken

Sometimes I just get tired of making the same dishes for dinner every week, so I set out to find something different. I ran across a Barbeque Chicken recipe that sounded good and went perfect with corn on the cob and baked potatoes. The chicken was very moist and flavorful. This will definitely be added to the rotation!

4 tbsp water
3 tbsp ketchup
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp chili powder
12 chicken thighs, skin removed or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together the water, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Add salt, mustard powder and chili powder. Simmer the sauce for 15 minutes.

2. Place the chicken into an oblong baking dish, and pour the sauce over making sure to cover all chicken. Cover tightly with foil.

3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, the reduce the temperature to 300 degrees and bake for 1 hour. Remove cover, stir and bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Serve sauce over chicken.

** If the sauce seems to runny after baking, you can pour it into a saucepan and add about 1/2 tsp of cornstarch, stirring constantly until thickens.
