Baked Chicken Breast

  • Author: B. Britnell
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 4 medium chicken breasts, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons of oil (any kind of oil will work here. I typically use olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • optional: herb of choice


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Pour the oil in a large baking tray. Place all 4 pieces of chicken breast into the tray and flip them over a few times so that they’re evenly coated in the oil.
  3. Sprinkle each chicken breast evenly with the salt and pepper (and any other spices or herbs that you’re using).
  4. Bake for 18 minutes. At the 18 minute mark, check the temperature of the chicken with a meat thermometer. You want the chicken to be at 165 degrees F. Continue to cook (if needed) checking every few minutes on the temperature.
  5. Once at 165 degrees F, take out of the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving or cutting.
  6. ENJOY!!
