This is the only Baked Chicken Breast recipe you'll ever need – the chicken is juicy, and you'll never get bored of my 6 seasoning combos!
Step 1 Preheat oven to 400 F. Mix chicken marinade of choice together in a small bowl and pour over chicken in a resealable bag or small bowl. Marinate for at least 15 minutes and up to 24 hours.
Step 2 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil. If you'd like to do multiple marinades at a time, make dividers using your tin foil as shown in the video.
Step 3 For 6 oz breasts: bake 18-20 minutes. For 8 oz breasts: bake 20-22 minutes. For 10oz breasts: bake 25-28 minutes. Check that chicken is cooked through by using a meat thermometer. Make sure it registers at least 162 F degrees in the thickest part of the chicken. Oven temperatures will vary so cooking times may vary slightly.
Step 4 Let chicken rest for 10 minutes before slicing or chopping. Store in mason jars for later or serve immediately with a side dish. Enjoy!
