Super Easy Chicken = Plan Ahead Cooking + Ready To Go Eating
SEASON > BAKE > SLICE > EAT
Combine with steamed veggies for a low calorie dinner and refrigerate the rest to reheat for lunches or a snack during those weak moments.
Step 1: Season The Chicken With Dry Spices
Season 6 boneless/skinless chicken breasts on both sides of the breast with your favorite dry spices. Caribbean Jerk or Roasted Garlic and Herb seasonings from McCormick have worked well for me.
Step 2: Bake The Chicken
Bake the breasts in the oven at 450 degrees until the internal temperature of the breasts are at least 165 (approx. 30 mins). Putting aluminum foil on a baking sheet really speeds cleanup afterwards.
Step 3: Slice The Chicken
Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing as shown in the picture.
Step 4: Eat The Chicken
Refrigerate in resealable containers. Combine with steamed vegetables for an easy dinner. Keep the leftovers for a quick microwavable lunch.
Suggestions For Serving
Serve with steamed veggies for a quick dinner.
Save the leftovers to eat for lunches during the week.
In those weak moments for snacking, it works great to have these ready in the fridge so when I need to have a snack, it’s ready to microwave…instead of going for some other kind of snack.
Super Easy Cleanup Bonus
Make the cleanup fast and easy. Capture the juices in the aluminum foil and discard. The baking sheet, tongs and cutting board can go in the dishwasher for good hygiene. Carefully clean and store the knife.
