My husband is one of those people that loves to grill year-round. Me? I am a grill-user during the summer months only because I just hate the cold too much! Standing outside shivering while checking on the meat…. holding a flashlight because at 6pm it is already dark outside … well- it’s just not for me. Which is why I like to find ways to adapt grilling favorites for the oven, so I can make these dishes for my family during the week when my husband doesn’t get home early enough to handle the outdoor-grilling-duty for me! Here is one of our family favorites…. Oven-Roasted BBQ Chicken Legs!
One of the best parts of making BBQ chicken legs as part of my weekly menu plan- is that it is SO inexpensive. One package of 14 drumsticks costs less than $4! That’s fantastic for our family of 8!
Remove the pan from the oven, and using your favorite BBQ Sauce (we’re fans of Kraft Thick & Hearty), brush the chicken legs with the sauce. Using tongs, turn each leg over and brush the other side as well. Return the chicken to the oven for 10 more minutes to allow the sauce to brown a bit. Remove the chicken from the oven and either take an internal temperature (using a meat thermometer) to ensure the chicken has reached 170 degrees, or cut into the leg at the thickest part close to the bone and make sure that it is no longer pink. (Serving undercooked chicken is a bad bad thing!)
Oven roasted BBQ chicken is delicious and tastes just as yummy as that made on the grill!
