Oven Baked Honey BBQ Chicken

If you are looking for a convenient make ahead dish for busy week day meals or preparing in advance for company this is one of those dishes. The chicken gets parboiled and marinated until you are ready to bake and serve.

  • 3 lbs or about 10 chicken pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups Ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup liquid honey
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Skin the chicken pieces if that is your preference and simmer in 1 inch of water for 30 minutes. Pour off the water and marinade the chicken in the sauce for 2 hours of over night. 
  2. Bake the chicken in a covered roaster for about 45 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Serve the sauce with rice and nice side dish of green beans. Remove the lid the last 15 minutes of baking if you want a stickier glazed chicken. 


  1. What's on the beans? Looks so yummy!

  2. Thank you thank you for this recipe. I had my family over for Sunday lunch and made this. We are 16 people so I doubled the sauce recipe and used about 20 bone in large chicken breasts. I will definitely make this again. Suzanna

  3. Is the mustard prepared mustard, or mustard powder?

    1. I used prepared mustard. If you want to use dry mustard use half the amount.

  4. made this tonight and LOVED it! SOOOOOOOOOOO yummy! Thanks, will be making this again and again, for sure! :D
