I got this recipe from one of my mom's church cookbooks. I always seem to find the best tasting recipe in church cookbooks! This recipe uses boneless chicken with a blend of spices to give it a wonderful taste. I usually make this with potatoes (prepared as fancy or simple as you like) and a vegetable. I also like to combine spices ahead of time. I've tried this by eliminating 1 or 2 spices when I was out and it still turns out wonderful.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all spices. (all ingredients except first two-chicken and butter.).
  2. Arrange chicken in shallow baking dish.
  3. Melt butter and pour over chicken.
  4. Turn chicken pieces over so both sides are coated with butter. (I use a tongs for this.).
  5. Sprinkle chicken with about 1/4 of the spices.
  6. Every 10-15 minutes, sprinkle another 1/4 of the spices on the chicken pieces.
  7. Bake at 375 for 55 minutes.

Excellent and easy - I might add that my boneless, skinless chicken breasts only took about 30 minutes to cook. They were still juicy. I think 55 minutes might be a little too long, at least for our tastes. This is a great recipe for after a busy day at work.

Great flavor for the chicken! I only used 2 breasts so I cut the recipe down. I also just sprayed the chicken instead of using butter. Delicious!

Delicious! I sprinkled all of the spices on the chicken first, and then drizzled the melted butter over the top. I used 1/4 cup butter instead of the 1/2 cup, and it was just perfect. I covered with foil, and baked at 275 degree oven for about 2 hours. Turned out great! Thanks!
