Perfect Oven Chicken Breasts

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!

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place chicken breasts in a glass baking pan. To read more about glass vs. metal baking pans, click here.

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 until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. 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. Check them with your thermometer after 25 minutes  and give them another 10 minutes for every 10 degrees off from 165.

If one chicken breast reaches the perfect temperature, 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!
