Simple Baked Chicken

by Laura

This is a simple but tasty way to serve up chicken. This simple baked chicken is so easy to put together and is so flavorful!

You can serve this chicken as is for a main dish or dice it up to serve on a salad. It also works for when you need  cooked chicken to include in a recipe.

This is quick and easier to make rather than baking a whole chicken but it is equally juicy and flavorful.

Simple Baked Chicken


  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and chili powder. Set aside
  3. Pound chicken breasts lightly so they are of even thickness.
  4. Pour olive oil in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Lightly dredge the chicken through to coat it, then place chicken breasts side by side in the dish.
  5. Sprinkle the prepared seasoning mixture over both sides of the chicken and rub it in with your hands. Place chicken breasts side by side, making sure there is no overlap.
  6. Bake in at 450 oven for 15-20 minutes, until juices are clear or a meat thermometer reads 160-170 degrees.
  7. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes while the juices settle before slicing. Serves 4.
