I hope you enjoy this START THE DAY before recipe from TOH as much as we do. The original recipe says 1 to 4 teaspoons of salt, and so you might want to adjust it according to your personal taste. The original recipe does not specify boneless chicken breasts, but I have made this both ways. But if making with boneless allow less time in oven-about 50 minutes-you might need to remove and keep warm smaller pieces while biggest piece is getting done. This recipe reminds me of the tandori approach to making chicken. Try with toasted Panko crumbs.

Delicious! I followed the recipe as written for all ingredients except the melted butter. I spritzed butter spray on the chicken before baking. The chicken breasts were a little dry so next time I will decrease the cooking time.

- 2 teaspoons paprika
