  • 10 chicken tenders or 1 lb chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce ( I use Sweet Baby Rays)
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes use more of less depending on your taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

    Line a baking sheet with foil.

    Mix brown sugar, red pepper flakes, barbeque sauce and garlic in a small bowl.

    Dip each chicken tender in sauce and place chicken on the baking sheet 

    Bake chicken for about 10 - 14 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken. do not overcook or chicken will be dry

    Turn on the broiler  and flip chicken tender over and broil for another 3-5 minutes depending on how broiled you like them. Be careful not to burn them and not to overcook them so they don't dry out.
