This recipe is so easy to make. Chicken breasts loaded with a simply good honey barbecue sauce. I like to use the extra sauce on mashed potatoes to complete the meal.

This chicken came out really good tonight. About 45 minutes into the cooking time I checked the chicken to make sure it wasn't drying out. I decided to take the foil off for the last 15 minutes. This really helped to glaze the chicken better. I made sure to spoon the sauce over the chicken a few times throughout cooking it otherwise the sauce would have stayed at the bottom of the dish and just kinda float in it. Thanks Doug!:o) Read More

I have made this recipe twice and the first time it was okay the second time was great! The first time I used a sweet bbq sauce because that was what I had--the second time I used a spicy sauce--what a huge difference! The second time I also used 1 cup of bbq sauce and the specified amounts of honey and ketchup because I wanted more of a barbeque flavor. I cooked for exactly 45 minutes and the chicken was just cooked through and very tender. It's so simple--you can't go wrong with this recipe. Read More

This is a great recipe! I used 1 cup of BBQ sauce & removed foil for the last 5 min to thicken sauce as per other reviewers. I also used 6 breast halves and there was still plenty of sauce leftover for a side dish (cheesy mashed potatoes - yum!). Cooked for 45 min - Perfect! Thank you! I'll keep this one forever! Read More

I'm so excited to find this recipe!! I have never before baked chicken with BBQ sauce before where the sauce didn't just slide off. THIS SAUCE STAYS ON!! Woohoo! I did use a SPICY BBQ sauce and I didn't have quite enough honey on hand but I used what I had and it was terrific. I baked for 20 minutes covered 10 minutes uncovered and broiled for another 5 min. Delish!! Read More

This was good although I prefer the recipe on this site called "Baked Bar-be-que Chicken". It's easier and the result is better tasting. Read More

Doug: Many a time I have poured bbq sauce over chicken pieces and baked in the oven! I did tonight follow your recipe and it turned out so much better than my "throw it in the oven" try!Absolutely delicious and there was nothing left on either of our plates! If anyone is interested I used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce that can be purchased at Walmart and cut down on the honey because the sauce is kinda sweet to start out with. Thank you for the "perfect" recipe! Read More

GREAT chicken!! Per another I used a spicy BBQ sauce which was slightly offset by the ketchup and honey. Also I was able to use 6 chicken breasts with sauce to spare. During the last 5 min of baking I removed the foil and baked just to thicken the sauce a little. The result was great and easy/quick prep time made this dish all that much more enjoyable. Thanks Doug! Read More
