This delicious roasted barbecue chicken makes a wonderful meal and is perfect for planned leftovers. Shred leftover chicken and use on Barbecue Chicken Pizza or in barbecue sandwiches (double up and cook two roasters for more leftovers).
Loosen skin from the chicken on all sides. Coat chicken between the skin and meat with half of the barbecue sauce and all the garlic, distributing as evenly as possible.
Tie legs together and place breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan. Drizzle a small amount of oil over the top.
Bake at 375°F for about 1 hour to 1 ½ hours or until chicken is cooked through. During the last 15 minutes brush remaining barbecue sauce over the chicken.
Shredded or chopped cooked chicken makes a great shortcut for future meals, so whenever I roast a chicken I freeze the leftover chicken for use in things like pizza topping, barbecue sandwiches, or to use in soups and casseroles.
