I had two thoughts the other day; wouldn’t barbecue sauce be better made from scratch and why is barbecue chicken always grilled? So, I set out to debunk the rules with a recipe for slow roasted barbecue chicken. To my surprise, it was one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made. Barbecue sauce from scratch doesn’t require much attention at all and the ingredients are mostly pantry staples. I like to marinate the chicken overnight in the homemade sauce in a disposable baking dish. The next day it goes from fridge to oven to trash (the dish, that is) with no mess or clean-up. But, the best part is falling off-the-bone juicy chicken with a crispy charred exterior and a new no-fuss weeknight dinner recipe.
