Oven-Baked BBQ Chicken

Oven baked bbq chicken

1/8 cup olive oil
1 and 1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 cup honey (I used much less)
1/8 cup dark vinegar (i.e. date vinegar or apple cider vinegar)
6 pieces of chicken drumsticks (about 3 pounds)
6 lime wedges (optional)

In a medium size bowl, add the olive oil, then pour in the salt and pepper. Add the honey and give it a whisk. Add the vinegar and give it another few whisks until the mixture is completely combined and thickened.

Preheat an oven to 350° F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the chicken a few inches apart. Brush each piece with the sauce, then turn over and brush again. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Brush each piece with BBQ sauce 1-2 times. Continue baking. Repeat this process (brushing each side) every 10 minutes for 40-50 minutes, or until the chicken is golden in color and caramelizing.

Serve immediately. Offer lime wedges alongside, if desired.

Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken, away from the bone. It should read at least 165° F.
