INGREDIENTS for Baked Chicken Breasts

– olive oil – chicken breasts  (boneless + skinless) – kosher salt – oregano – paprika – black pepper – garlic powder

How long do you bake chicken breasts? I found 400ºF to be the best temperature to bake boneless chicken breasts. This way, they’re done baking within 20 to 25 minutes. Bone-in needs to bake for 30 to 40 minutes.

How do I avoid dry chicken?  To prevent overcooking the chicken remove the baking dish from the oven once the chicken’s internal temperature is between 160ºF to 162ºF. Tent the baking dish with foil and the residual heat will finish cooking the chicken to 165ºF.
