This is the juiciest way to cook chicken breast EVER! And it’s seasoned perfectly!

So often chicken breast can turn out tough and chewy. Roasting it, basted with olive oil, locks in the moisture and cooks it to perfection.

Start with good boneless, skinless chicken breast, and trim away extra fat and sinews.

Place each breast between 2 pieces of parchment paper and pound out any overly-thick spots so that chicken is uniform.

Place on oiled (or sprayed) baking sheet covered with foil.

Drizzle or baste the olive oil all over each breast, front and back.

Mix spices and sprinkle generously all over, front and back. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Slice with a sharp knife.
Serve with a couple of side dishes to make a full dinner.

This is great as a leftover and can be used in any recipe that needs cooked chicken. DELICIOUS!!!
