Can we all agree that dry chicken is the worst? I used to get so sad when I was trying to pull together a quick weeknight meal only to cut into a flavorless chicken breast. (Boring with a capital B!) Thankfully you will never have to worry about that again because of this insanely easy recipe. It has been my go-to for years.
When I’m making a batch of this chicken, there is truly no measuring! I line a pan with foil, place the chicken breasts on top, then drizzle olive oil and season *generously* with the spices. That is the major deal-breaker here. Don’t skimp on the salt! See that gorgeous red-orange tint on the chicken? That’s from the paprika, which gives a subtle smokiness. Garlic powder is a classic and the oregano adds a nice herbal dimension, but you could leave off depending on how you’re going to use the chicken!
Just like that in about 20 minutes, you have the easiest and most flavorful chicken breasts for your week! You can use these baked chicken breasts chopped up for salads, sliced thinly for a sandwich or warmed up with a side of rice and veggies.
