Three-Ingredient Baked Chicken Breasts
I use this as a basic baked chicken recipe when another recipe calls for cooked chicken. Works great for everything and is super customizable. Sometimes I use garlic salt or other seasonings, depending on what I'm using it for.
- Serves: 4 persons
- ¼cup butter, melted
- 1teaspoon salt
- 4skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Step 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly butter a baking dish.
Step 2Stir 1/4 cup melted butter and salt together in a bowl.
Step 3Arrange chicken in the baking dish. Brush butter mixture onto the chicken until thoroughly coated, pouring any extra over the chicken.
Step 4Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 30 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
