Two Ingredient BBQ Chicken

This recipe is pretty much a no-brainer.  It is the simplest recipe ever.

We had a luncheon at work the other day and my friend, Nate, was in charge.  It was a dutch oven themed lunch.  We had dutch oven potatoes, pasta salads, barbequed ribs, this yummy barbequed chicken and desserts.

This chicken was so tender and juicy and had great flavor.  I couldn't believe he poured BBQ sauce over frozen chicken and that was it.  He didn't even add salt and pepper.  It's all about the BBQ sauce.  Sweet Baby Rays has great flavor and it's pretty peppery, so no seasonings are needed.

It's easy enough for a weeknight and tasty enough for Sunday dinner.    Delicious.

4 frozen chicken breasts
1 bottle Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place chicken breasts in a large, oven-safe, pot (one with a lid).  Pour bottle of barbeque sauce over the top.  Cover with lid and bake for 50-55 minutes or until internal temperature reads 165 degrees on an instant-read thermometer.  Remove from oven and serve.

*This recipe is written using frozen chicken breasts, you can use thawed breasts, but your baking time will vary.

    1. That's what I said too when I first tasted this!! Thanks.

  2. This sounds so easy and good! I love recipes that use frozen chicken breasts for when I forget to thaw them ahead of time. Thanks so much for sharing this at Saturday Night Fever!

  4. This is one of my favorite go-to dinners on weeknights. Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce is the best! I love that you use frozen chicken. Makes it even easier (especially when I forget to thaw my chicken the night before! lol) :)

    1. I know I always forget to thaw my chicken the night before. Thanks - Jenn

  5. Sometimes, all you need is a good chicken meat, and the meal will turn out delicious, despite its effortless procedure. The rest will depend on the presentation, so as to make it look more appetizing. Yours turned out amazing, btw! Thanks for sharing this easy and delicious meal!
