Super Easy Baked Chicken Breasts

"This is a recipe given to me by a dear friend that I do when it's an hour from dinnertime and I'm too tired to do a lot of prep work. I usually have chicken breasts in the freezer and everything else comes out of the pantry. Great results for how easy it is to do!"

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Oil or spray 9x13 baking pan.
  • Pat chicken dry and place in the pan. Drizzle or brush with olive oil and sprinkle with the remaining ingredients in order of recipe.
  • THE INGREDIENT AMOUNTS GIVEN ARE APPROXIMATE! Use more or less to suit your taste and to give a nice even coating of each ingredient on the chicken pieces. I never measure for this recipe, I just eyeball it. Feel free to use any seasoning salt you like instead of the Bon Apetit or substitute your favorite herb for the parsley flakes. You can also add to or reduce the number of chicken breasts according to your family size. I often cook extra to make sandwiches the next day. This is more of a technique to try than a recipe!
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. I usually microwave 4 medium potatoes for 10 minutes and then put them in the oven at same time as the chicken to finish cooking-makes quick baked potatoes. I serve veggies, salad and bread for a nice, easy weeknight dinner.

I was born and grew up in Utah and lived there until 2004, when my hubby's job took us to Central Virginia. On February 28, 2006, I was blessed to receive a living donor kidney transplant. I had suffered with Polycystic Kidney Disease symptoms for many years, and finally my old kidneys had done as much as they could. My dear brother was tested and rejected as a donor, at which point my dear brother-in-law stepped up and was an excellent candidate for donation to me. I feel so blessed to have had these two dear men and others in my family who were willing to risk their lives for mine. How can you find words to thank someone for the gift of a life worth living? I am so grateful that I don't feel ill all the time now, and that I can have fun again. To top it off, my dear BIL thanked ME for letting(!) him be of service to me! Hubby and I have been married for 30+ years and we have 2 kids-a daughter who won't eat meat-she's not really vegetarian, because she eats chicken soup, stir frys and things like that-she just doesn't eat the meat pieces in mixed dishes. She loves cheese and eats eggs, so vegetarianism is just an easy way to say she's PICKY, lol. Then my son, who is autistic, is a major carnivore, but he absolutely will not eat cheese, unless it's parmesan that comes out of a green can! I like that stuff too, but you really can't call it cheese. So, he's picky too, but in an entirely different way than my girl. Sigh... It is often an interesting proposition to get a meal on the table that everyone can be satisfied with. At least hubby will eat almost anything, and we all eat veggies pretty well. I'm picky too, so that's where my kids get it, I'm sure.
