Do you put BBQ sauce on chicken before or after baking?

Here’s what to do:
  1. Pour the BBQ sauce over the chicken and let it marinate while the oven heats.
  2. Now put the chicken on a baking sheet skin side down.
  3. After 25 mins, turn the chicken over and baste with more BBQ sauce.
  4. Then another 25 mins later you’ll baste it once more before a quick broil.
