Oven Baked Chicken Recipe

I love this oven baked chicken recipe courtesy of my friend Misty. It's so easy and so versatile, and really tastes great.

oven baked chicken thighs

I used chicken thighs this time, but this would be a great chicken leg recipe or even for baked chicken wings. If you watch your grocery store, they sometimes put "chicken quarters" (an attached leg and thigh) on sale for .39 cents per pound. That's an inexpensive way to buy chicken! I'll list different variations in flavors at the bottom. This one is spicy buffalo thighs.


  • package of thighs, or wings, or legs, or quarters
  • 5 tablespoons of butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1/3 cup of hot sauce - such as Louisiana, tabasco, or Frank's
  • paprika
  • Lawry's seasoning salt
  • garlic powder


Cover a large baking sheet with foil, and arrange rinsed chicken on foil.

Sprinkle with paprika, Lawry's, and garlic powder.

Put in a 250 degree oven for two hours.

Meanwhile get your hot sauce and butter ready. I used Louisiana, because it's what I had, but I love Frank's Red Hot Sauce.

Melt this in the microwave and have a brush ready.

After two hours, remove chicken from the oven, and coat with the melted butter and hot sauce.

Flip 'em over, and coat underside.

Then put the pan back into the oven and turn the broiler on, and cook the chicken until the skin is nice and crispy (these took about 10 minutes on low broil), but cook this oven baked chicken recipe to YOUR preference.


  • use a barbecue sauce instead of the hot sauce/butter
  • use no sauce, and just enjoy the seasoning
  • use ranch dressing or mayonnaise or mustard
