Oven baked foil packet BBQ chicken

A friend of mine recently shared this method of baking bbq chicken with me, and it sounded so good that I just had to try it. This is a great end of summer meal, and it's super easy to make. Chicken is marinated and wrapped in a foil packet, and then slow cooked in the oven for 2 hours. Dark chicken meat is best to use, as it just falls apart as it cooks and retains moisture. The first time I made it, my grocery store was out of dark meat in the brand of chicken I buy, so I bought chicken breasts instead. It had a great flavor, but was a little dried out, so ever since then, I have only used dark meat and it is so good-very moist and fall-apart tender. This is a simple meal for any busy cook, and the flavor will not disappoint! You can use any store bought bbq sauce, unless you want to make your own. This is great served with rice or potatoes, green beans, or corn. We usually make it at least once every two weeks!

Baked BBQ aluminum foil chicken

I N G R E D I E N T S :
1-2 lbs boneless chicken thighs (1 lb can fit in 9x9 pan, 2 lbs in 9x13)
1/2 bottle bought BBQ sauce


D I R E C T I O N S :

Line a 9x13 baking dish with aluminum foil, and spread a thin layer or bbq sauce on the bottom. Place thighs in a single layer over bbq sauce, then pour remaining bbq sauce over chicken. Take another sheet of foil and place over chicken, sealing the two pieces together to make a foil packet.
Bake at 300F for 2 hours.
