How To Bake Chicken Breast in The Oven

You just need to make sure to use a thermometer, so you don’t overcook the chicken, which is a common problem most people have. To begin, allow the chicken breast to sit at room temperature to remove the chill, but while it is doing that you can apply a flavorful spice rub.

Season the chicken breast with a shot of olive oil and a generous pinch of salt, and a few cracks of pepper on both sides. Optional is to add smoked paprika and cumin.

Preheat the oven to 230 degrees C, hot oven, place the chicken breast on a tin foil lined sheet tray, and bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes. The key to not overcooking the chicken breast is to take its temperature using a digital probe thermometer that can stay in the oven during the cooking process.

Stick the probe into the middle of the chicken breast after it’s been baking for 10 minutes, and once the internal temperature reaches 68 degrees C, pull the chicken from the oven and move it to a clean plate, leaving the thermometer inside.

Most chicken breast recipes call for cooking the chicken to 70 degrees C, which is the desired final temperature, but if you pull the chicken breasts from the oven at 68 degrees C, they will continue cooking and the temperature will rise at least another 5 degrees (known as carry-over cooking). If you wait to pull the chicken from the oven until it reaches 70 degrees C, the chicken breasts will be slightly overcooked.

Allow the chicken breasts to rest for 3-5 minutes after they come out of the oven and enjoy.
