BBQ Roasted Chicken Thighs

There’s something wonderful and comforting about the flavor combination of BBQ chicken.  It’s comforting because it reminds me of a a BBQ with friends and family on a warm summer day.  It’s wonderful because it’s tasty.  Wonderful and comforting is a dynamite combination – and not because BBQ chicken is often spicy!

This is a recipe that you can enjoy all year round, because the chicken gets cooked in the oven.  And, the skin still gets crispy, so if you like chicken skin, this one’s for you!

We usually enjoy this with mashed sweet potatoes.  Look for our mashed sweet potato recipe next week!
