Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast halves or tenders (I use tenders)
    1/2 cup bbq sauce
    1 can chicken broth

Directions

Pour just enough chicken broth in a baking dish to lightly cover the bottom. Add single layer of chicken, tenders work really well because two tenders is a serving size. Lightly brush the chicken with bbq sauce, reserve the rest. Pour in the rest of the chicken broth.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for 60 minutes. The broth will keep the chicken tender. Use the rest of the bbq sauce to top the chicken when you serve it.

Makes 4 servings

Serve with potatoes you can bake in the same oven or brown rice and your favorite vegetable.

Number of Servings: 4

    OK, I MADE THIS. I TWEEKED IT A BIT, BUT I AM SURE IT WASNT NEEDED. I ADDED 2 CLOVES OF MICED GARLIC, USED SWEET BABY RAY'S BBQ SAUCE, AND 3 TBLE SPOONS OR SO OF WORSTERSHIRE SAUCE...WOW. I GOT PRAISES ALL NIGHT. CHICKEN IS SUPER TENDER. WOULD EVEN BE A GREAT SANDWICH AS MY WIFE SAYS. DELICIOUS - 11/18/08

    I made this and it was very good. I used chicken breasts instead of chicken tenders. When the chicken was cooked, I took the broth and strained it and then used it to cook couscous. I added another cup of chicken broth for the couscous. It was very flavorful. To round out the meal we added veggies. - 11/11/08

    I made it with COOKIES BBQ sauce from IOWA and CERRETAS BBQ sauce from GLENDALE, ARIZONA. Both are great BBQ sauces. It's too bad they are regional sauces because everyone is missing out on some delicious BBQ sauce. If you can order them over the internet I urge you to do so immediately. - 6/23/09

    Try using beer (any kind) instead of just broth - mixed with broth or alone. I seasoned the breasts with salt, pepper, onion & garlic powders (lightly) and coated the top with a layer of Bull's Eye Original BBQ sauce - It was a huge hit with everyone! Reduced cook time to about 40-45 min. - 10/10/12

    I liked it, i did not cover it, I was unsure of whether or not to? I added carrots, but they did not cook, most likely cause it was uncovered. after cooing, I brushed with more bbq sauce and broiled at 400 for about 5 min. very moist and yummy! - 8/12/10

    Very Easy. very tender, you can spice it up with bbq sauce type, or use season salt and pepper flakes on chicken prior to baking.... Incredible, I use very basic recipes, with corn for veggie... yummy - 7/17/10

    This is a wonderful way to make bbq chicken without it eing loaded with sauce. I'm not a big BBQ fan, so this one fits my tastes perfectly as it has just a touch of the BBQ flavor, and the broth makes it so tender! Today, I used the leftovers to make healthy chicken salad & had a yummy sandwich! - 10/15/09

    THIS IS A KEEPER! Seasoned chicken breast w/ garlic pepper & onion powder. Following one of the reviews, I mixed a can of n/a beer w/BBQ sauce; poured it over the chicken. Baked at 350 25-min on one side, then flipping it, baked for another 35 min or so. Great as a topping for a green salad. - 7/23/15

    The flavor was not there even though I did season it. I don't know if it was the broth that made me dislike it or what. I won't make again. - 1/25/12

    Hmm, I am not sure what I did wrong. I did not like this at all. The meat was very tough and had no flavor. Maybe some of my chicken pieces were too big, but even the small pieces were tough. I would not call it BBQ chicken. You have to warm up BBG sauce to pour over at the end to add bbq flavor. - 1/21/12

    There is no way the nutrition information is right on this one. The lowest calories for a serving of chicken I have seen is 110. And if its 1 lb of chicken then it would be four 4 oz servings. Something went wrong on the calculations. - 1/14/12

    I have a little different way for BBQ Chicken Breasts. I cook them stove top in a tbs of Worcheshire, a tbs of Olive oil and one-half onion plus a clove of garlic. After cooking, I add the BBQ sauce and let simmer for a couple of minutes. Yum! - 7/28/10

    I would rate this higher, but the calorie count is very inaccurate. There are 35 calories per ounce of boneless, skinless chicken, and this recipe calls for 1 lb. (16 oz) of it. My math isn't the best, but that should equal WAY more than 82.6 calories per serving. Still tastes great though! - 6/19/10

    We really enjoyed this chicken, I did not use a whole can of broth I had some broth in a 32oz container I used about 3/4 cup. I used this sauce from the site http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
    il.asp?recipe=467053 I would make this chicken again. I also probably used closer to 1.5lbs
