Not fancy. Just a super simple go-to meal when time is tight and energy is low! Great with scalloped potatoes or other veggies as a side dish.

This no-frills BBQ chicken breast recipe needs to be in your Recipe Box. There are no fancy ingredients in this easy and delicious recipe. We used our favorite BBQ sauce since that is the main flavor and suggest using what you like best. The chicken breasts are smothered in barbecue sauce and cooked to tender perfection. The hardest part of this meal is choosing what to serve on the side. The Test Kitchen
