More Winter Comfort Food: BBQ Chicken

We had some BBQ sauce left after our triumphant slow cooked BBQ Brisket. We rummaged through the freezer and found a package of chicken thigh meat and decided to use the leftover BBQ sauce to make a simple BBQ chicken dinner, this time we used our cast iron skillet and roasted the chicken in the oven. 

After the BBQ Brisket, Mike thought ahead and skimmed the fat off the remaining sauce and let it solidify in the fridge, which turned into the magic ingredient that turned our simple-left-over-let's-eat-what-we-have-around chicken dinner into another memorable winter (dreaming of summer) BBQ feast. This was another ridiculously-easy, delicious, stick-to-your-cold-bones winter meal. Hopefully with more dinners like this to come, we may just survive this recent cold snap Portland has been experiencing.
