Easy Oven-Roasted Barbecued Chicken

Barbecued Chicken …Yess! Yes, I love my Chicken, funny how I hardly cook with Chicken, in fact, I don’t use Chicken for any Nigerian soups or stews, I’ll only eat them grilled or roasted or for intercontinental sauces.

Anyway, this oven style Barbecued Chicken was on the menu for lunch today. Normally, I would make my own Barbecue sauce from scratch but that only works when using a proper outdoor grill as  the grilling method produces quite a lot of moisture during cooking but I promise to share another recipe featuring the home made sauce before summer ends or as soon as I can get my hands on an outdoor grill.



3 Chicken Leg Quarters

1 Cup Barbecue Sauce

Teaspoon Garlic Powder

Teaspoon Thyme

1 Teaspoon All Spice (Pimento)

1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon powder

Knorr Chicken Cube

1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Salt to taste


For those wondering, these are the All Spice(Pimento) and Barbecue Sauce I’ll be using.

Wash your chicken thoroughly. Mix the dry ingredients thoroughly…

Rub the dry ingredients all over the chicken, making sure they’re well covered with the spice, remember to rub some underneath the Skin for thorough penetration. You may wish to make some incisions on the chicken. Leave to marinate for at least 2 hours. Overnight preferably.

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.

After marination, arrange the chicken on a roasting tray, then place in your preheated oven and grill for 15 minutes on both sides.

  1. Hi,

    I tried this recipe when I came back fro. work last night impromptu!. It actually came out well. I used fresh garlic in mine, one scotch bonnet pepper and a little fresh ginger. Crushed with my mortar and pestle.

    Next time I will tell the butchers to leave the skin on the chicken. Thanks Sisi Jemimah.
