Oven Roasted Chicken Breast

Chicken is one of those things that is always in my refrigerator. Even if it is not on my grocery list I find myself putting it in the cart because it is so easy to use.

Consider it a blank canvas filled with possibilities. You can go spicy Asian, salad, pasta, or tin foil dinners… The possibilities are literally endless.

But occasionally I am at a loss for what to whip up. That is when THIS recipe comes in handy. It is a classic recipe that tastes amazing right out of the oven or comes in super handy as the base to other recipes . We have eaten it shredded in tacos, over a salad, in pasta, quesadillas, and have plans for so many more recipe options.

It is the recipe that keeps on giving.

How to roast a chicken breast in the oven:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Mist a 9×13 dish with non-stick spray and place your chicken breasts so they are not overlapping. Set aside.
  2. Cook the garlic in the olive oil in a medium sized skillet until just warm. Remove from the heat and whisk in the stock, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Pour over your chicken. Sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper and cover with the sliced lemon.
  3. Bake 30 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165° 

How long does it take to bake chicken breast in the oven:

This is the most common question I am asked. The answer is 20 to 30 minutes. The time will depend on the thickness of your chicken breast and the temperature of your oven. For a full breast baked at 400 degrees you will be cooking for about 30 minutes until you see the internal temperature reach 165 degrees.

If you are looking for a quicker cooking time, I suggest slicing the chicken breast in half lengthwise. This allows you to shave off around 10 minutes from the cooking time. Be sure to cook the chicken until it reaches the internal temperature of 165 degrees.
