Oven Baked BBQ Chicken
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tb. finely grated onion (on a grater, or use small food processor)
  • 2 Tb. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tb. Dijon mustard (I use 1 Tb. because I don't like mustard)
  • 3 Tb. molasses
  • 2 Tb. maple syrup
  • 3 Tb. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne (omit for kids or really sensitive adults)
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Tb. olive, vegetable or grapeseed oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Whisk together everything from ketchup to cayenne.
  3. In a large, oven safe nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium. Add chicken and brown on both sides - about 4 minutes total.
  4. Remove chicken from skillet. Add sauce and cook about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken back to the pan, cover with foil (or parchment tucked around the inside) and place it all into the oven for about 20-30 minutes. The chicken should be cooked through and register 165 degrees.
  6. Serve while warm.
