Perfect oven baked chicken breasts every time! Learn my simple and easy method for how to make perfectly juicy and deliciously seasoned oven baked chicken breasts.
Preheat oven to 450°F. and spray a large glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place the chicken breasts in an even layer.
Brush the chicken with butter or oil on both sides. Then sprinkle the seasoning mixture evenly over the chicken on both sides.
Substitutions: Feel free to swap out the garlic powder and paprika with any other favorite seasonings. Italian seasoning or taco seasoning would be great options. See full post, above, for more ideas.
Storing leftover chicken: Once the chicken has been baked and is cooled to room temperature, it can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to about 5 days. It also freezes well for up to 3 months. You might want to shred, dice or slice it before freezing, for easier use.
