Baked Honey Barbecue Chicken

Succulent chicken thighs marinated in a smoky honey barbecue sauce and baked to perfection in this baked honey barbecue chicken recipe. I can’t stop eating it!

Little G is a typical American child.

He’s a sucker for a good old-fashioned meal from the United States.

He loves barbecue ribs, chicken, and pork briskets as far as American cuisine goes. He always finishes the food on his plate at Phil’s BBQ in San Diego, which is unusual for him.

Even though summer was over, I wanted to make sure he could still enjoy his favorite barbecue, so I baked him these honey barbecue chicken thighs. He was delighted with the results.

Incredibly tasty despite being one of the most straightforward recipes ever. Sweet and tangy honey barbecue sauce coats tender, moist chicken thighs baked to perfection.

Drippings from the chicken should be saved and served with the chicken.

Risotto is an excellent vehicle for drippings.

I served these chicken thighs to Little G, and he gave them a thumbs up. Try my recipe today; it only takes 10 minutes of active time. Enjoy!

  3. Toss the chicken with barbecue sauce, honey, and liquid smoke. To ensure a smooth mixture, give everything a good stir. Bake the chicken in a pan lined with parchment paper. 40 minutes in the oven is the recommended time for this dish. Serve the chicken immediately after removing it from the oven and reserving the drippings.
