This baked chicken breast recipe makes the best baked chicken!

Simple 3-step method and 3 ingredients for the most juicy, tender, and delicious baked chicken breasts.


– olive oil – chicken breasts – stone house seasoning



Preheat the oven to 450º F. Arrange the oven rack to the middle position.



While the oven is preheating, pat the chicken breast dry with a paper towel. I drizzle a little olive oil into my skillet (if I’m making a few), 9×13 baking dish (if I’m making a medium batch), or baking sheet  (if I’m making a larger batch).


Arrange the chicken in the pan, allowing it to touch but not overlap. Drizzle with a bit more olive oil, and then sprinkle liberally with your seasoning of choice. Then, place it in the oven.



Bake chicken breasts until the juices run clear when the thickest part of the chicken is pricked with a sharp knife, and the internal temperature registers 160º F with a meat thermometer or instant-read thermometer, about 20 minutes.



Remove the skillet or casserole dish from the oven, tent it with foil, and let the chicken rest for another 5 minutes.
