Oven Barbecued Chicken and Biscuits
Oven Barbecued Chicken and Biscuits is spectacular! It’s been a family favorite for years. I love this delicious chicken dish. Of course, barbecue and I go way back. I have a real weakness for it. I like barbecue on all kinds of meat and even in veggies! Not to mention that this is also one of the EASIEST recipes I have!
This fantastic entree features barbecued chicken that’s baked in the oven, so it’s great to make in the winter when you don’t particularly want to light up your outside grill in freezing weather! Then after baking the chicken you roll refrigerated biscuits into the barbecue sauce in the pan. Turn the biscuits sauce-side-up, and sprinkle them with Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. They’re absolutely mouthwatering.
I found this marvelous recipe in my Pillsbury cookbook years ago. It’s a quick and tasty main dish that uses only a few ingredients you probably already have on hand. It also includes refrigerated biscuits to make it even easier. It calls for bottled BBQ sauce.
Sweet Baby Ray’s or KC Masterpiece are great because of the zip they have. But you can use any kind of BBQ sauce with this recipe. I made this chicken dish all the time for our family when our kids were growing up, but it’s nice enough to make for company, too. I served this main dish recipe for company last light.
I love making dishes that only take me 5 minutes to prepare and I can pop them in the oven for awhile so I can work on something else. This is one of those main dishes. It’s very economical too.
I first made this recipe in August of 2012. I was in the beginning stages of food blogging then and the pictures were deplorable. I’ve remade this fantastic recipe (February 2014) and updated the pictures. That way you’ll have a better idea of what this tasty recipe turns out like.
I made it again last Sunday for a houseful of company. Even though the original recipe serves about 4-6, this recipe expands quite nicely. I baked 15 chicken breasts in 3 large 10×15″ baking dishes, using three batches of sauce, and 4 cans of biscuits. We had enough left over that I’ll be serving it again this week! Try it, you’ll love it!
I recently remade this recipe again (August 2018) for our Friday night care group. Didn’t I tell you I loved this easy recipe? I have so many recipes it’s rare when I make something more than once or twice a year. But this is certainly a favorite. I served it along with Spinach Artichoke Mashed Potatoes and Magic Cherry Cobbler. Everyone loved it–especially the biscuits. I made a double batch of the recipe again and put half of the biscuits in a round torte dish. They come out terrific no matter which way you prepare them. I hope you give this scrumptious recipe a try with your family soon.
Oven Barbecued Chicken and Biscuits has always been one of our favorite main dish entrees.
The chicken is always moist and delicious. The rolls are scrumptious!
I rolled the biscuits in the barbecue sauce and then add the Italian seasoning. After that, the biscuits are sprinkled with parmesan cheese on top. The biscuits come out so savory and flavorful. The barbecue sauce, cheese, and Italian seasoning works so well!
Oven Barbecued Chicken and Biscuits is southern comfort food to die for!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Dice onion and put it in a mixing bowl. Add barbecue sauce. I made three batches of this recipe. I used one batch with Sweet Baby Rays (pictured above) and two batches of KC Masterpiece Original barbecue sauce. Add water and stir to combine.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Spray a 10×15″ glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place chicken pieces in dish. You can use bone-in or boneless chicken. Sprinkle chicken with salt.
Spread barbecue sauce over top.
Bake uncovered about 30-40 minutes at 375. Turn pieces over and spoon additional sauce over top. Bake an additional 15-20 minutes.
Scoot the chicken to one side of the dish leaving room for the biscuits. I spooned additional sauce into a torte dish.
Remove biscuits from can and place into the baking dish with chicken or you can add like this to a separate dish.
Swirl the biscuit into the sauce (smothering it really well), then turn the biscuit sauce-side-up. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
Add parmesan cheese.
Bake at 375 another 15-20 minutes until biscuits are cooked through. For the main baking dish with chicken and biscuits – that dish can go back in the oven as well (with the chicken in the dish as well as the biscuits).
Remove from oven. If desired, spoon more BBQ sauce from the bottom of the baking dish on top of the chicken before serving.
I served Oven Barbecued Chicken and Biscuits with Spinach Artichoke Mashed Potatoes. Both were so delicious.
Oven Barbecued Chicken and Biscuits is a simple dinner recipe that can be prepared really quickly. The biscuits are soft, fluffy and so tasty.
