So, because I was so frank with you all earlier this week in regards to my medical history I won’t hesitate to say that an unfortunate side effect of my current UC flare up is that I have absolutely no appetite and haven’t all week. What I have eaten has been extremely bland and unexciting and I can probably count the number of actual meals I have eaten this week on one hand. As you can imagine, that has caused me to be a little uninspired in terms of blogging about food.
Personally, I feel that writing a post of baked chicken is ridiculously boring and I feel the need to apologize. However, I am forced to remind myself that over the years I have actually had many close friends and peers who have confided in me that they wouldn’t begin to know how to boil an egg, let alone bake chicken. Well ladies and gents of the fast food line… this one is for you. To my well-experienced cooks out there I promise to be back on top of my game next week!
Dark meat, bone-in chicken pieces (i.e. drumsticks and wings)
BBQ Sauce (please feel free to make your own, I do not because there is a yummy natural one at my local grocery store)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken pieces in a glass baking pan and bake for 40-45 minutes uncovered. Remove the chicken from the oven and brush with sauce. Place chicken back in the oven for 15 minutes. Serve and Enjoy.
- I will say that I am usually not a fan of baked chicken because of its texture, but I have followed this recipe a few times and the chicken always comes out moist, not rubbery or dry.
