Cheesy BBQ Chicken Bake

Chicken bakes are common at our house! Especially with three very busy children.

Cheesy BBQ Chicken Bake
This is a super easy dish. I used to love when my mom would make BBQ chicken in the oven. This meal definitely takes me back. It was enjoyable being able to add a little of my own take on it. This BBQ chicken is taken to the next level by adding some veggies and other embellishments!
  • *Gunpowder Seasoning this is made by one of our local grocery stores The Star Market. The flavor is that of a grilled steak.
  • Granulated Garlic
  • Onion Powder
  • Chili Powder
  • Paprika
  • Mix 1/4 tsp of each seasoning together and set to the side.
*You may not be able to find the gunpowder seasoning where you live. In this case, you can use any of your favorite seasonings. I added a link to the store and to a forum where someone has come up with a clone recipe for the seasoning.
