Recipe by Melvin'sWifey
Want dinner on the table in just over half hour? I came up with this recipe when I had chicken breasts and not a lot of other stuff in my cupboard. I used bone-in breasts that were already split open, so I stuffed my breasts with the mixture, but it is not absolutely necessary. This recipe calls for FRESH herbs, not dried. Here I used parsley but you can use any fresh herb of your choice. Rosemary, basil, cilantro, parsley, dill, or any other you can think of!
- 2 -3 chicken breasts (bone in, or out works fine)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup fresh parsley, minced (or any other fresh herb, see above for options)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper (to taste)
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Wash and dry chicken breasts. If desired, split chicken breasts so you can stuff herb mixture inside. This is not necessary, but is a great option! Set chicken on a baking sheet lined with foil for easy clean up. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, add olive oil, vinegar and worcestershire sauce. Stir to combine.
- Add to the bowl minced parsley, garlic, chili powder, and red pepper flakes. Stir everything together and mix well.
- Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
- Stuff chicken breasts (if doing so) with 1 tablespoon or so of the mixture for each breast.
- For the remaining herb mixture, use a fork or spoon and spread all on top of the chicken breasts, as evenly as possible.
- Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is done and no longer pink inside.
- Make sure you let chicken rest at room temp 15 minutes before eating, as moisture needs to redistribute.
