Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Spice Rub

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano or Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil (for easy cleanup).
  • If chicken breasts are thicker in some parts than others, pound them to an even thickness using a rolling pin or meat mallet. (Place chicken in a zip-top bag or between two sheets of parchment before pounding.)
  • Place chicken breasts on the baking sheet, drizzle with oil and rub over both sides of chicken.
  • Combine the spice rub ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Rub the spice rub over both sides of the chicken.
  • Bake chicken breasts according to their size: bake 5-6 ounce breasts for 13-16 minutes, bake 8 ounce breasts for 16-19 minutes, bake 11-12 ounce breasts for 22-26 minutes. Check that chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Remove the pan from the oven, loosely cover with foil and let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
