These chicken breasts are so flavorful and easy to make, they’re been on repeat lately in our house!
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, (usually 2) see notes
1 Teaspoon smoked paprika, see notes
1/2 Teaspoon granulated garlic
1 Teaspoon granulated onion
1 Teaspoon sea salt, or to your taste
1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon avocado or olive oil
Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
In a small bowl, combine all the spices. Add the oil and stir to form a loose paste. Coat the chicken breasts in in the spice mixture, and lay them in a 8-9″ baking dish.
Bake the chicken until it’s done in the center or a thermometer read 165ºF, or about 15-20 minutes for 8 ounces chicken breasts.
Remove the chicken from the oven and serve with your choice of sides.
The chicken breasts we get are usually around 8 ounces each, but be aware that timing does change depending on size. Smaller chicken breasts take around 12-15 minutes where 8 ounce chicken breasts are between 15-20 minutes.
Regular paprika works as well, but smoked paprika is worth adding to your shopping list.
