Oven Baked BBQ Chicken

Another one of my mother-in-laws delicious recipes. We ate this a lot when we lived near  Murray’s parents & whenever we went to visit. Quick & really simple. You just put the sauce on the chicken, put it in the oven, baste a few times while it is cooking & then enjoy it!

This time I cooked the chicken uncovered but I think this needs to be cooked covered for a while & then uncovered to let the chicken brown.

We usually eat this with rice to soak up all of the delicious pan drippings…yum! But you can eat it with any side dished you prefer. You can double this recipe easily to make it for a crowd! In the picture you will see we ate it with somehomemade potato Kreplach & roasted broccoli…

Here is the recipe


1  3 lb chicken cut up or any type of chicken that is the same amount so you can use boneless chicken etc.. whatever your preference is

salt & pepper

1 onion, sliced or cut up…your preference here

1  12 oz bottle of Heinz chili sauce

1/2 cup water

1 tbsp white vinegar


  1. Season your chicken with salt & pepper
  2. Put the cup-up onion in the bottom of a roasting pan that is big enough so that the chicken can be in a single layer in the pan
  3. Put the seasoned chicken on top of the cut up onions in the roasting pan
  4. In a 4 cup measure or large bowl, mix the chili sauce, water & vinegar together
  5. Pour over the chicken
  6. Cover the chicken & cook for 1 hour at 350f *** I cooked my chicken uncovered the whole time so either way is actually fine
  7. Uncover the chicken & continue cooking until it is done, I like my chicken nice & brown so it will need at least another hour. \
  8. Baste the chicken often with the pan juices while the chicken is cooking.

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
