Easy, Moist Baked Chicken

With an extremely busy schedule, it can be hard to find time to eat healthy and nutritious food. But with a little planning and cooking ahead, it can be very manageable. One way I do this is on Saturday or Sunday (sometimes both if I'm really in the mood to cook), I bake up a couple big chicken breast. Then I cut them up and have them ready to go in the refrigerator. That way, even when I am exhausted from working all day, I can come home and have something healthy and easy to eat.

This is my favorite way to cook chicken. By cooking it at a really high temperature and for a shorter amount of time, it locks the moisture in the chicken. This also helps it taste great all week long.

Directions:

Wrap a 8X10 casserole dish in aluminum foil. Spray lightly with pam. Place chicken breast inside pan and lightly cover with olive oil. Next season the chicken with garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and oregano. (You can get creative here and use any seasonings you'd like. I also really love experimenting with Ms. Dash's Salt Free/ MSG-Free seasonings.. there are so many different flavors to choose from!).

Bake chicken breast for 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Then flip the chicken breast over to the other side, season that side, and place back into the oven for another 15 minutes.

And presto! You have easy and absolutely delicious chicken breast waiting for you for the rest of the week.
