Ground Black Pepper
Start by seasoning the
Chicken (8 pieces)
all over with
Salt (to taste)
Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
. Set these aside in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Then, in a large bowl, make a milk bath by combining
Milk (4 cups)
Hot Sauce (1 Tbsp)
. Put the chicken into the milk bath and marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Then season the chicken parts all over with a light dusting of
Chili Powder (2 Tbsp)
Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Grapeseed Oil (2 Tbsp)
onto a baking pan and lay the chicken parts skin side down onto the baking pan. Put the tray of chicken into the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the oven and lightly brush the chicken parts with
Barbecue Sauce (1/2 cup)
. Turn the chicken over and now brush the skin side of the chicken with more barbecue sauce. Put the chicken back in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the oven again, and brush the chicken with another layer of
Barbecue Sauce (1/2 cup)
Put the chicken back in the oven for 10 more minutes and cooks until the sauce is set and the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
Feel free to use your favorite barbecue sauce for this oven baked chicken recipe. If I have the time, I maybe inclined to make a quick barbecue sauce to go with our dinner. But in this case, for an easy weeknight dinner for the family, we’ll use our go-to barbecue sauce, Sweet Baby Rays.
I like Baby Rays because it is a great sauce by itself, but also can be adjusted to tastes. Adding a little vinegar and mustard makes it Memphis style. Bring in some peach jam or honey to take on a whole new flavor.
