Baked BBQ Chicken Thighs
These Baked BBQ Chicken Thighs are made with a homemade rub and then baked and smothered in bbq sauce. Plus you probably have all these ingredients in your pantry already.
- 4 pounds chicken thighs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ teaspoons smoked paprika
- ¾ cup bbq sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with foil. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and set aside.
In a small bowl mix all seasonings together. Coat chicken thighs in your dry rub and place on a baking rack. Bake for 40 minutes turning once about half way through.
Remove chicken from the oven and brush with BBQ sauce.
- Tip: For a crispy skin place the chicken baked into the oven on broil for a few minutes. Keep an eye on them they should not need more than 2-3 minutes.
- Tip: I sometimes use a baking rack to keep chicken out of the dripping. This will help you get really crispy skin.
I love serving this chicken with a side salad, roasted vegetables, and loaded baked potato casserole.
