If you read my Meal Plan Monday posts, you may have noticed Oven BBQ Chicken making very frequent appearances. It is so incredibly easy, and it really stretches a buck when it comes to boneless skinless chicken breasts. The best part is, all you need is chicken and barbecue sauce! One of the keys, though, is really good barbecue sauce, and I have consistently gotten good results with Sweet Baby Ray's sauce.'
True to its name, it's nice and sweet, and has a thick consistency and smoky, rich flavor that works really well for this dish. Bonus that all Sweet Baby Ray's sauces are gluten free! It does have modified food starch in it, but per the manufacturer that starch is derived from corn, so it's safe.
There's no recipe needed for this - all you have to do is put your chicken in a baking dish and squeeze sauce on top to cover it.
Bake it at 425 until it's cooked through, which usually takes about 35-40 minutes for me. Let it rest for a couple minutes, then grab a couple forks and shred. The sauce from the chicken will soak into the shredded meat and flavor it all the way through.
Pile it up on a gluten-free Udi's hamburger bun, top it with a little more BBQ sauce if desired, and serve it up!
We had the sandwiches for dinner, and I used the leftover BBQ chicken as the protein in my lunchtime salads all week. It was especially delicious with the sweet corn and red bell peppers I added!
Now you can see why I make it all the time!!
