My girlfriend and I are both college students so this quick and easy chicken recipe was an affordable and tasty hit at our table last night! Requiring just a few ingredients and low prep time makes this a great dish any day of the week. The homemade BBQ sauce goes great on pork and ribs too! Feel free to adjust the sweetness or spiciness to your pleasure.

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.

  • Mix barbeque sauce, honey, brown sugar, and chile-garlic sauce together in a bowl until you have no clumps of brown sugar. Spoon about half the sauce into a separate bowl for serving.

  • Arrange chicken breast halves onto the prepared sheet. Brush sauce from one of the bowls onto breasts.

  • Bake chicken breasts in the preheated oven, brushing with sauce every 10 minutes, until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Season with pepper and serve with the reserved bowl of sauce for dipping.

Cook's Notes:

Double marinade for use as extra dipping sauce.

If time is a factor, bump the oven up to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and cook for 45 to 50 minutes ensuring that the chicken is cooked internally to 165 degrees F.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I tried this recipe because I had the ingredients and needed a quick meal. It was delicious. I had first rubbed the chicken with a spice rub and let marinate for about three hours. The chicken was moist and delicious! I will definitely make again. Read More

Great recipe!!! Chicken turned out really moist. I didn't have spicy sauce so I added a bit of chilli paste and garlic powder. Also added the black pepper to the sauce and a bit of salt. Also added a bit of salt and onion powder to the chicken before the sauce. Read More
