My Favorite Way to Bake Chicken

I have been following this method for years to make really great, moist and flavorful chicken breasts. The secret is the high temperature!  -Kristin

Chicken breasts (that will fit in one pan with room in between them)
Olive oil
Kosher salt
Black Pepper
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Dried Oregano

  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • Drizzle olive oil on the pan.
  • Place chicken on the oil and flip once to get oil on both sides.
  • Sprinkle with the seasonings as desired.  Flip and do both sides.
  • Bake uncovered for 10 minutes, flip and drizzle with a bit more olive oil if needed.
  • Bake for 10 minutes more and check the thickest part by piercing the thickest part with a fork (or a slit with a knife) and see if the juices run clear.  If they are not clear continue to bake until they are.  ***Baking time will need adjust depending on the size of the chicken breasts.  
  • When finished cooking remove from oven and cover tightly with foil for 5-8 minutes.
