BBQ-less BBQ Chicken


This is the best BBQ chicken I have ever had. They are tender and flavourful and you don’t even need a barbecue.

I use chicken thighs in this recipe since I’m convinced they are impossible to overcook. I also use a sheet pan with a baking sheet on it to crisp the outside of the thighs. This also renders off the excess fat in the thighs.


You could also of course use your barbecue for this recipe, but I like the convenience of using the oven. Plus you can enjoy it year round!

So are you team barbecue or oven?

Servings: 4


  • 1 Pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Onion Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Cup BBQ Sauce (my favourite)


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a cooling rack on a sheet pan and grease the cooling rack with non stick spray.

Mix together garlic powder, onion powder, chilli powder, salt and pepper. Season the chicken thighs on both sides. Place chicken thighs on the cooling rack. Bake the the chicken thighs for 2o minutes, flipping half way through.

Remove chicken from the oven and baste the chicken thighs on one side with BBQ sauce. Bake for 5 minutes. Flip the chicken and baste the other side of the chicken with BBQ sauce. Repeat the process two more times.

Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
