Now look, people. I’m not pretending this recipe is going to be chicken of the year. It’s not fancy and it’s not tricky. But it’s good, it’s filling and it’s allergy-friendly!
- Chicken Leg Quarters (This is important. Quarters are yummy and they are cheap too! If you have a toddler eating, even better – dark meat tastes good and provides necessary fat and iron. )
- Jarred BBQ sauce, suggested Sweet Baby Ray’s Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce
- Chopped onion
- Chopped red or green pepper
- salt, pepper
Pat the chicken dry. Spread it in baking dish. Drizzle with BBQ sauce (not too much), sprinkle with salt and pepper, top with chopped onions and pepper. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 for an hour. Remove foil, dump the sauce that’s in the pan over the chicken, and bake uncovered for 15 more minutes or until juices in the chicken run clear. Serve with oven-baked fries, mashed potatoes, or baked sweet potatoes and salad.
