BBQ Chicken is delicious, however sometimes it is hard to find the time to dedicate yourself to the grill! This is a SIMPLE and delicious chicken served with any of your favorite BBQ sides or serve it over a salad or throw it on some yummy crusty bread for a sandwich. Really, the possibilities are endless with a good piece of chicken!


  • 4 Chicken breasts, trimmed of fat
  • 2 Tablespoons of Red Pepper Flakes (add a bit more if you like it spicy!)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Trim fat off chicken, pat dry. Wash hands and dry completely.
  3. Cut 4 pieces of foil, about 12 inches in length (enough to form a foil packet)
  4. Spray one side of foil with cooking spray or 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  5. Slice onions thinly
  6. Sprinkle foil with red pepper flakes, lay Chicken on top then place a layer of onions
  7. Squirt some BBQ sauce on top, I use about 1 tablespoon per chicken breast
  8. Form packet, fold foil over and leave a small opening for steam to escape.
  9. Repeat for remaining 3 breasts

  11. Remove from oven and unwrap top of foil slightly, then place back in oven for 5 to 8 minutes, to “crisp” up chicken breast
