How to Bake Your Chicken Breasts:
- Preheat your oven and grease a 8-9 inch baking dish. The size depends on how many breasts you are baking. I baked 6 smaller breasts and was able to fit them in a 9 x 13 dish.
- Pat the chicken breasts dry and place in the dish. Be sure they don’t overlap each other. Give them a bit of space! Next, brush the tops of with oil and sprinkle with dried seasoning.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes. Our chicken were thin and this was plenty of time for them be be done. However, it could take a bit longer, if they are thicker/larger in size. If desired, you can thin the chicken breasts a bit by pounding out with a meat mallet. The internal temperature of the chicken should be at least 165 degrees when it’s fulled cooked.
- When it’s done, remove it from the oven and place a piece of foil over the dish. It doesn’t have to be done tightly, just covered loosely. Leave it on for 5 minutes. This helps seal in the juices and gives you some yummy tender chicken.
- Remove the foil and eat!
