JUICY Oven Baked Chicken Breast. Rubbed with a simple seasoning then baked until caramelized, this is a terrific chicken breast recipe you’ll make Over and over again.

The secret ingredient in this recipe is brown sugar. It adds sweetness but not to worry, this Baked Chicken Breast is still savory. There are 2 reasons why this is my secret ingredient:

1. It makes more seasoning, so you can coat the breast thoroughly and give it a beautiful crust without overpowering it with lots of spices that need longer to cook than chicken breast does;

2. It makes the chicken sweat while it bakes, so you end up with wetness that makes the chicken more juicy than the usual baked chicken breast.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breast , 150 - 180g / 5 - 6 oz each (Note 1)
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Seasoning:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or thyme , or other herb of choice
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper

GARNISH, OPTIONAL:

  • Finely chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425F/220C (standard) or 390F/200C (fan / convection).

  2. Pound chicken to 1.5cm / 0.6" at the thickest part - using a rolling pin, meat mallet or even your fist (key tip for even cooking + tender chicken).

  3. Mix Seasoning.

  4. Line tray with foil and baking paper (sugar caramelises, it's annoying to clean off tray). Place chicken upside down on tray. Drizzle chicken with about 1 tsp oil. Rub over with fingers. Sprinkle with Seasoning.

  5. Flip chicken. Drizzle with 1 tsp oil, rub with fingers, sprinkle with Seasoning, being careful to cover as much of the surface area as you can.

  6. Bake 18 minutes, or until surface is golden per photos and video, or internal temperature is 165F/75C using a meat thermometer.

  7. Remove from oven and immediately transfer chicken to serving plates.

  8. Wait 3 - 5 minutes before serving, garnished with freshly chopped parsley if desired. Pictured with a side of Garlic Butter Rice with Kale.

Recipe Notes

1. If your breast is quite large eg 250g / 8oz+ each, cut them in half horizontally to form 2 thin steaks and skip the pounding. Make sure they are no thicker than 1.5cm / 0.6" thick at the thickest point - if they are, pound using fist.

 

This can also be made with thigh fillets (boneless, skinless). Follow the recipe but cook for 25 minutes for small/medium thighs and 30 minutes for larger ones.

 

2. Nutrition per serving, assuming 150g/5oz chicken breast.
