Easy Baked BBQ Chicken (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

Baked BBQ Chicken - Gluten-Free

Chris and I normally crave barbecue at least once a week. We normally just go out to a local barbecue joint for dinner, but now that we have the new oven (YAY); I can make my favorite baked BBQ chicken at home (no grill required).

This recipe is super simple to make. You’ll notice that the first 5 ingredients (plus olive oil), are more of a basic chicken seasoning recipe. Feel free to use that base, and switch out the sauce for something else (ex: Italian Dressing). Voila – you’ll have a whole new meal.

See the okra in the picture? Recipe coming soon, and it’s completely non-slimy … YES.

Easy Baked BBQ Chicken

Serves 2-3


  • 1 lb. chicken breasts (2 breasts)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, each side
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, each side
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Pickapeppa sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • BBQ sauce (I used Russ and Franks)
  • Extra virgin olive oil


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the chicken breasts in a small casserole or baking dish. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of the chicken. Sprinkle onion powder and garlic powder, from the bottle, on both sides of the chicken. Pour Pickapeppa, Worcestershire over chicken. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil on the chicken. Mix chicken and ingredients with hands to evenly coat the chicken with sauces. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. When there is 10 minutes of cook-time left, pour BBQ sauce over chicken.

  1. This looks great! Can you buy the Pickappepa & Russ & Franks BBQ sauces in stores or do you have to buy online?

    • Hi Laura! Thank you! If you are in Texas- then you will have to buy Russ and Franks sauce online. If that is something you do not want to do – switch out that sauce for your favorite BBQ sauce (Stubb’s is another GF one). You should be able to find Pickapeppa sauce in the same aisle as Worstheshire sauce in your everyday grocery store. Hope that helps!

  2. That does look great, I have got to try it, bbq sauce is no problem, hopefully I can find the Pickapeppa sauce, have never heard of it before.

  3. The OKRA is what looks even more amazing! Recipe for that?

    • Thanks Dee! I just roasted the okra for 20 minutes at 400 degrees in the oven and seasoned it with a little bit of olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper! :)
