Oven Barbecue Chicken

Oven Barbecue Chicken – A Complete BBQ Dinner

This is the ultimate Oven Barbecue Chicken. It’s a one-dish dinner, good to go from oven to table, buffet, backyard or tailgate.

Skinless boneless chicken breasts share space with sliced sweet onion, fresh mushrooms, and baby new potatoes. Lightly seasoned and smothered in barbecue sauce, the chicken and vegetables come out tender and moist.

Perfect for any season, the assembly can be done ahead of time, needing only for the sauce to go on and the dish to go in the oven.

This is a great recipe to add to your repertoire of fabulous chicken dinners.

Ingredients
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 large sweet onions cut in 1/8's
  • 1 pound white button mushrooms stemmed and halved
  • 1/2 pound baby red new potatoes halved
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced dried onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 bottle 18 ounces barbecue sauce - your favorite
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Lightly oil or spray a 9 x 13 baking dish. Lay the chicken in a single layer, then put in the onion chunks and the mushrooms. Make room for the red potatoes. Try to keep everything in a single layer - you may need to squish the chicken pieces and rearrange some of the vegetables.
  3. Season the chicken and vegetables with the kosher salt and black pepper.
  4. Combine the dried onion, garlic and rosemary, then sprinkle the mixture over the chicken and vegetables.
  5. Pour the barbecue sauce evenly over the chicken and vegetables. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour.
  6. The chicken should be cooked through and register 180F and the vegetables should be tender and cooked through.

Good to Know – This recipe works well with other cuts of chicken besides the boneless breasts.

Chicken breasts with the bone in, as well as leg and thigh quarters, benefit from the long, slow cooking.

Use regular red potatoes if the baby size are not available. Quarter them or cut in large chunks.

Food For Thought – Although barbeque sauce lends itself perfectly to a dish of chicken and vegetables like this one, you might consider using your favorite marinara sauce.

Fresh rosemary sprigs tucked under the pieces of chicken releases its aromatic essence during the baking and fills your kitchen with wonderful savory expectations.

Excellent served with hot cooked pasta.
