How To Make Baked Breast Chicken Recipes
Easy baked breast chicken recipes– I realized that baked breast chicken recipes are one of highly searched things on Google. But, it is not my reason to write this recipe. I just cook what my family like eating. It’s easy, creamy and so delicious.
At the first step before baking the breast chicken, rub the chicken with a little olive oil. The purposes are to help chicken moisture and also helps the seasonings stick, to the breast. I try to use a very simple seasoning of pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and chili powder. This is my method that I have been practicing for years. I use it for easy and a quick dinner. I will also cook extra, and save it to adding casseroles and soups. Keep the chicken in a sealed bag in the fridges for a few days or pop it in the freezer if you are not eating all.
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Then, pound chicken breasts lightly, so they are of even thickness.
- Pour olive oil in a 13 x 9 baking dish. the chicken of lightly dredge through to coat it. Then place chicken breasts, side by side in the dish.
- In a small bowl, whisk together pepper, garlic powder, salt, onion powder and chili powder. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over, in both sides of the chicken and rub it in with your hands.
Place chicken breasts side by side, making sure there is no overlap.
- Bake the chicken in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until juices are clear or a meat thermometer reads 160-170 degrees. (depending on the size of your chicken breasts, it can need more longer time). My chicken were pounded to less than an inch thick.
- Cover with foil, and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes while the juices settle before slicing.
- Serve hot.
A lot of people were concerned about the olive oil, being cooked at such a high temperature, and that it can break down and become harmful so I have switched to using corn or canola oil. Although the oven temp is 450 degrees; the food does not reach anywhere near that temperature, and it is only in the oven for a short time. I have never had, an issue with the small amount of extra virgin olive oil reaching. It is smoke point on the chicken but, if you are concerned, I recommend yo to do some research and making good decision for yourself.
Happy cooking 🙂
