Honey BBQ Chicken


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 large chicken legs, bones attached (I used about 4 lbs of chicken) – Feel free to try this recipe with other cuts of chicken πŸ™‚
    For the Rub:
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
    For the sauce:
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (I used a garlic based one but you can use whatever you like)
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp honey
  • 3/4 cup chili sauce (Use the kind like this, which is similar to ketchup – but with a little kick)

Instructions

  1. Thoroughly combine the ingredients for the rub in a small bowl.
  2. Massage the rub mixture onto the chicken and allow to chill in the fridge for at least 30 min before cooking. NOTE: If you’d like, you can marinate the chicken in the rub mixture overnight in a large zip top bag overnight in the fridge.
  3. Thoroughly combine the ingredients for the sauce in a mixing bowl. Into a smaller bowl, reserve about 1/2 cup of the sauce for use at the very end.
  4. Preheat the oven to 425Β°F.
  5. Place the chicken onto a baking sheet.
  6. Spread 3/4 cup of the sauce mixture over the chicken.
  7. Bake the chicken in the oven for 45 – 60 minutes. Half way through the cooking process, spread remaining sauce (except the reserved 1/2 cup) over the chicken.
  8. Once the chicken has finished cooking and has been removed from the oven, spread the reserve 1/2 cup sauce over the chicken.
  9. Serve with potato wedges, fries or whatever else you like! πŸ˜€
