Some chickens are also marinated today. In this case, you can skip the first step below. Butter or olive oil: it's your choice! I like the extra taste of butter, but olive oil works very well. Kosher salt: An important ingredient in our brine, it can also be used to season chicken. Seasoning: I added a universal mixture of smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and black pepper to the recipe below. It is very simple and can match almost anything. But feel free to add any dry seasoning you like. In addition, if you often cook roast chicken (or any other type of roasted protein) in the oven, I recommend 1 million% to prepare a kitchen thermometer.

I recommend this: Instant Reading Kitchen Thermometer (shown below)-I have owned and used it for many years when cooking chicken, Amazon wireless dual probe meat thermometer is priced at about $9.99-I also own it, I like it Because it can be used in a hot oven (especially for grilling steak, salmon, and pork), the retail price on Amazon is about $24.99. Roasted Chicken Breast Recipe Original photo I made for this recipe (2015) How to Roast Chicken Breast: Okay, here is the secret! To make a perfectly grilled chicken breast, you only need to follow the five-step acronym: B.B.R.R.R.BrineBrushRubRoastRest Step 1: Brine I tell you, whenever you want to roast chicken breasts in the oven, you must perform this step. Marinating chicken is very simple, it can make your chicken more juicy, and most importantly, it can be cooked effectively in 15 minutes. In addition, soaking the chicken in warm water will also help bring the chicken to room temperature, which will make the cooking more even. Everyone wins! To marinate chicken, just fill a large bowl with warm (not hot) water. Add a handful of salt until most of the salt is dissolved. Then add the chicken breasts and let them sit in the brine for at least 15 minutes. If you make this ahead of time, you can keep the chicken and brine bowls covered for up to 6 hours. But you don't want to leave the chicken in the brine for too long. When you are ready to start, remove the chicken from the brine. Rinse with cold water to remove the salt, then pat dry with a paper towel.
Look, your chicken is officially in brine. Seriously, don't skip this step! It is very different. Note: Having said that, some store-bought chicken breasts are now sold in brine. Therefore, please check your packaging beforehand. If your chicken has been soaked in sodium solution before, please proceed to the second step. 🙂 Step 2: Brush with melted butter…your chicken breasts. Or at least, I recommend using butter. It adds great flavor and helps to form a beautiful golden crust on the outside. However, if you prefer to use olive oil (or other favorite cooking oil), please feel free to use it. Brush the breasts generously on both sides to prevent the chicken from sticking to the pan and also help seasoning. Next, put the chicken breasts in a large roasting pan or roasting pan. Step 3: Rubbing If you really want to keep it simple, you can simply sprinkle a little salt and pepper on the chicken breast. But again, the chicken will have the flavor of the seasoning you added. Therefore, even if you are making simple dishes that require "original" chicken breast, I highly recommend the simple chicken seasoning recipe I provide below, which includes salt, pepper, garlic powder and chili powder.
This has caused some controversy among chicken lovers-how long should the chicken breasts be roasted? What is the correct temperature for roast chicken? Are you slow roasting on low heat (for example, roasting at 350°F for 30 minutes)? Or do you roast chicken high and fast (e.g. 15 minutes in 450 minutes)? I have tried these two methods, and have tried almost every interval, dozens of times, dozens of times, dozens of times. In the end, I fell firmly in the last area in terms of roasting chicken. I like roasting chicken breasts at high temperatures. 🔥Depending on the thickness of the chicken breast, it will take 15-18 minutes to cook the chicken at 450°F (depending on the thickness/size of the chicken breast). It is fast and simple. But the most important thing is that I like it because cooking at high temperatures will quickly form a crisper "crust" on the outside of the breast, which also helps to retain the juices and keep the inside of the roast chicken perfectly soft.
This is the best of both worlds. I strongly recommend investing in a small cooking thermometer to measure the temperature of cooked chicken to see if it can be used (FDA says the safe temperature for cooked chicken is 165°F), instead of cutting it with a fork, so that the good juices can seep Out. I use an instant-reading thermometer (affiliate link) that I bought from Amazon for $10, and it accurately measures the internal temperature of the chicken in a few seconds. Step 5: Rest There is no room for negotiation. You should, should let your exquisite grilled chicken breast rest before slicing-in fact, this technique applies to cooking any meat. If you interrupt immediately, you will lose all the amazing juices and some of the cuteness we are looking for. However, if you let the freshly baked chicken breasts rest for a while, they will finish cooking and retain all the delicious juices, resulting in the most tender, juicy, and delicious roast chicken. Keep warm when the chicken is resting. Then after 5-10 minutes, you can finally enjoy the perfectly cooked chicken breast and enjoy the last bite. ♡ How to prepare marinated chicken to make grilled chicken breast Roast chicken seasoning recipe Roast chicken breast recipe
