Mealthy tip:

Get a jump start on the next time you make this recipe by doubling the batch of barbecue sauce. Use half of the sauce right away and keep the extra in the fridge to use another time. You could also use this barbecue sauce on chicken thighs or breast, or pork chops.

Really delicious baked bbq chicken! When I saw this recipe used an original sauce I was really excited and it turned out great. I set some sauce aside to add extra after taking it out the oven. So good!

This BBQ baked chicken is incredible. I've made it with both drumsticks and chicken breast, both are amazing. Everyone in my family loves when I'm making this for dinner and the always beg for seconds.

Great tasting chicken. I did some ancho chili powder to the sauce for some spice. Definitely would make this again or redo the sauce for wings.
