Enjoy perfect BBQ chicken indoors with this quick and easy Stovetop Barbecue Chicken Recipe! This is an all-time reader favorite recipe, and I hope you love it too!
Did you grow up eating barbecue chicken? It wasn’t a regular dish at our house, but I remember having it at friend’s house when I was a kid. They cooked bone-in BBQ chicken on the grill, and it was a messy affair to eat it, so much so that they had a few wet washcloths available at the table. I think this is such a distinct memory to me because I hated getting messy as a kid just as much as I do now. Having to eat saucy chicken with my hands made a lasting impression I guess. How do you feel about eating messy foods?
This stovetop barbecue chicken recipe on the other hand isn’t messy to eat at all, and you can make it in a hurry without the need of a grill. That’s perfect for satisfying your BBQ craving during bad weather!
This recipe is written for two, but it is easy to scale. Using a lid speeds up the cooking process, which is especially great for busy cooks making weeknight dinners. The last time I made it, I used this recipe from Simply Scratch to make my own BBQ sauce because I realized I was out when it was time to cook. (OK, I butchered the recipe to use what I had on hand and reduce the sugar, but I’m sure it’s great as written.) You will love this juicy stovetop barbecue chicken whether you use store-bought or homemade sauce. Be sure to come back to let me know how you liked it!
