  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together the water, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt, mustard powder, and chili powder. Simmer the sauce for 15 minutes.
  2. Place the chicken thighs into an oblong baking dish, and pour the sauce over them. Cover tightly.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce the temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and bake for one hour. Remove cover, stir and bake uncovered for 15 minutes.

Very tasty! I threw it all in the slow cooker on low for 6 hours (as opposed to the oven), and it turned out fabulously!



This is truly one of the BEST baked BBQ chicken recipes ever!!! I don't know how I lived without it. Here's how I altered it, based on our tastes and the other reviews: (1) used 6 thighs, not 12, (2) doubled the sauce, (3) halved the water (will omit completely next time), (4) omitted the salt, (5) added cayenne. WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! One further note.... The second time I made this, the baby started crying just as I was about to start cooking the sauce, so I threw the uncooked sauce and chicken in the oven and went on my way. We didn't notice any difference! So from now on I won't be wasting time cooking the sauce.



Thanks for sharing, this was excellent. For those who complained the sauce was too runny there is an easy fix. I poured the sauce over chicken breasts and baked at 375, covered, for approximately 45 min. I removed the cooked chicken to a platter, then poured the remaining sauce into a saucepan, over med-high heat, I added about 1/2 tsp. of cornstarch and stirred constantly. Within minutes it was thickened & bubbly. I then basted it over the cooked chicken and then put the chicken on the outdoor grill just to crisp it up and give it that authentic "barbeque" feel. Everyone loved it.
