Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Slash each piece of chicken 2-3 times. Put the chicken, onion wedges and peppers in a roasting tin or ovenproof pan, then toss with 1 tbsp oil and the barbecue sauce. Roast for 40 mins, turning halfway, until sticky and tender. Add a splash of water if the sauce dries up a little at the edges.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium pan, then soften the chopped onion for 5 mins. Stir in the thyme, rice, stock and seasoning. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 12 mins. Turn off the heat, tip in the corn, add chilli if using, put the lid back on and let the rice steam for 10 mins more. Fluff up the rice, then serve with the chicken, vegetables and pan juices.

Extremely easy to make! Tried this recipe and was quite pleasantly surprised. I thought using BBQ sauce was an odd idea but tasted lovely.

Have made this few times now and used a different sauce each time and had good results every time.

This should not be advertised as child friendly. One serving alone is well over the RDA of sugar.
Disappointing. AND why recommend bought BBQ sauce? Make your own. Poor recipe.

Had this tonight for Dinner was lovely we used chicken legs instead of portions even my fussy 6 year old liked it we scored it 31/40 as a family and would have it again, I did have to add some water to the sauce also forgot to add the green pepper but still tasted good will maybe add mushrooms next time too x

This was tasty but because the water came out of the chicken legs when roasting it stopped the sauce going sticky. Any suggestions how to combat this?

Tried it last night and came out perfect! Though I added garlic and left it to marinade over night :) I added peas to the rice too!

Lovely recipe, but which bottled BBQ sauces are best? The prices vary hugely, which always makes me wonder if I should make it from scratch... Any suggestions?
