Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat your Dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the BBQ sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to combine.
  3. Place the chicken pieces in the preheated Dutch oven, skin side down. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy.
  4. Flip the chicken pieces and pour the BBQ sauce mixture over them. Make sure each piece is coated evenly.
  5. Cover the Dutch oven with its lid and reduce the heat to low. Let the chicken cook for 1 hour, basting occasionally with the BBQ sauce.
  6. After 1 hour, remove the lid and increase the heat to medium. Cook for an additional 30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
  7. Remove the Dutch oven from the heat and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
  8. Serve the BBQ chicken hot with extra sauce on the side, if desired.
