  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!

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 approximat...

Great recipe for BBQ chicken! However, I turned this into a marinade for grilling vs. baking this in the oven. I left out the water and used Heinz chili sauce vs. ketchup for a little extra kick...

This has GOT to be my favorite chicken recipe of all time, and my family of 5 agrees! I used 12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs and followed the recipe to the letter. The chicken was oh-so-t...

This was so good! I made this last night with boneless skinless chicken breasts, and it was so delicious, and also very easy. I had never tried making my own BBQ sauce before, but this is so s...

Excellent, delicious, easy-to-make recipe. I made five changes in my preparation: soaked the meat in a salt, sugar, and spice brine for an hour, covered the pan bottom with onion slices, used ho...

We prepare this recipe using a measurement yield for 24. We like this thinner style sauce that much. We use 12 thighs instead of 24 or 6 skinless breasts or combination of each. Again, using the...
