Baked Barbecue Chicken: With a mild curry flavored barbecue sauce to spoon over top!

Cruise through weeknight dinner prep with this easy-to-make Baked Barbecue Chicken dish with endless amounts of delicious sauce to spoon over top!
Spooning Sauce Over Baked Barbecue Chicken in Baking Dish
Being able to put your feet up, as this flavorful chicken dish bakes in the oven, is good. Having an endless amount of delicious sauce, to spoon over each baked chicken breast, is the best!

Both the sauce, and this chicken dish, is a cinch to make! And, the flavor of the sauce is easy to tweak in many different ways - I will explain how simple it is in just a second.

This time I used curry powder, Sriracha sauce, and lime juice to add a hint of international cuisine cred to the sauce's dominant barbecue flavor.

The sauce begins with 3 ingredients: barbecue sauce, plum sauce and soy sauce.

With that tasty trio in place, simply add a spice, a flavor-enhancer, and something sour to tweak how it tastes.

For instance, if you enjoy a more southwestern-style sauce for your chicken, add:

  • 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp. yellow mustard, and 1 Tbsp. lemon or lime juice

as your spice, flavor-enhancer, and sour ingredient!

It may take a few taste tests and tweaks, but when you hit it right you may hear yourself enthusiastically say …“Now THAT'S what I’m talking about!”
