Oven Barbecue Chicken is my recipe of the day.  It  uses one of my favorite  and  inexpensive things to cook- bone-in chicken  pieces.

Now  that  autumn  is here, and summer grilling season  comes to a close,   we don’t  have  to give up on  having our favorite barbecue suppers. It is so easy to put together a simple oven baked barbecue, even with a made from scratch barbecue sauce.

Retro Baked  BBQ Chicken

This is something my mom used  to make a lot  when I was growing  up. She would grill  as  often as she could in  summer. But our family loved it year round.  So  it was her  solution for  the winter  months. Grilling up chicken was  her favorite meat to grill.

Although she  didn’t go so far as making  her own sauces from scratch. That  is  something  I picked up on my  own  and enjoy  doing.

And besides being  a really thrifty choice, cooking  chicken on the bone also keeps it more moist and  flavorful
