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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.
