To make Perfect Oven Chicken Breasts, start with bone-in chicken half breasts, which you can often find on sale, like we did at Vons for .87 cents a pound. Score!
Season top and bottom with Mr. Kac’s Crack Special Seasoning.
Use a knife to separate chicken skin so you can sprinkle Mr. Kac’s Crack Special Seasoning under the skin. This will give you flavorful white chicken meat for tacos, sandwiches, salads, whatever. The chicken skin and ribs will help keep the meat moist while cooking.
Cook at 425 degrees. The USDA recommends cooking chicken until tt reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. (But be careful not to overcook. We finds better results when we cook to a slightly lower temp and then let it sit on oven top for 5 minutes. This 4-pack of chicken breasts weighed 5.15 pounds and took 55 minutes to cook perfectly.
Depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts, cooking times can vary.
If one chicken breast cooks faster than another, pull it out and place it on a plate while the others cook.
The secret to Perfect Oven Chicken Breasts (besides Mr. Kac’s Crack Special Seasoning) is to not overcook the chicken!
