Perfectly Baked Chicken Breast

We have a joke about baked chicken in my family. We ate it for about a year when I was in high school.  Lets just say baked chicken is not my mom’s speciality. It was sometimes a bit dry (that is me trying to be polite). We laugh about it now though and while I don’t think we will be eating baked chicken for a year straight ever again it is an easy and tasty protein staple if made correctly.

Since grilling season is in the past I have been using this recipe to prep my chicken for the week. It makes perfectly juicy chicken and in barely any time by setting the oven to a high temperature.

  1. Boneless skinless chicken breasts (fully defrosted if previously frozen)
  2. Olive oil spray
  3. salt, pepper and seasoning of choice
  1. Preheat oven to 450F
  2. Spray a cooking dish with olive oil spray and align breasts evenly
  3. Spray both sides of chicken breast with olive oil spray and season with salt, pepper and any other seasonings
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, flip to other side, spray once more and bake for 8-10 minutes or until juices run clear
  5. I usually check if mine are done by cooking just until the "lines" show up on the inside
  6. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving or store in the fridge for up to 5 days
