Finally the weather has begun to warm up and next month it will be Memorial Day so you know what that means – it’s time to fire up the grill and BAR-B-QUE! 

Even though I haven’t fired up the grill for the season, that didn’t stop me from making these tangy BBQ chicken thighs in the oven for Sunday dinner.

BBQ Chicken Thighs


  • 8-10 chicken thighs (bone-in, skin on)
  • 2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • olive oil, seasoning salt bbq chicken in the over


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Coat the chicken on all sides with olive or canola oil and season with salt and pepper or any type of dried seasonings. oven bbq chicken
  • Place the chicken skin side up in a glass pan coated with cooking spray and cover with slices of onion.

  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from oven and turn the temperature of the oven up to 425 degrees.
  • Coat the top of the chicken with barbecue sauce using a basting brush. Use rubber tipped tongs to turn the chicken over, being careful not to tear the skin.
  • Baste the other side of the chicken, and place back into the oven for another 10 minutes.
