Roasted Chicken Breast

Roasted ChickenI’m going to share with you my “go to” chicken recipe. Dress it up with fancy side dishes, and you have a great meal to serve guests. Dress it with simple sides, and you have a great everyday dinner. And whether you are cooking just for yourself or a large dinner party, there is very little to measure. All the magic is done by your oven. Don’t believe me? Just try this. (This recipe can also be used with skinless, boneless breast as well. Just adjust your baking time to 40-45 minutes.)


  • Bone in, skin on chicken breasts (quantity depends on your needs)
  • Sea Salt or Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Italian seasoning blend
  • Paprika
  • Lemon juice (squeeze 1/4 lemon wedge per breast)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (2 tablespoons per breast)


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cover baking pan with foil for easy clean up. Generously season backside (bone side) of breast with salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning blend, paprika and lemon juice. Drizzle one tablespoon of olive oil to cover. Then turn over skin side up and repeat seasoning and olive oil drizzle.ย Roasted Chicken 2

    Weโ€™ve Woven a Web
    MAY 28, 2010 / DOUGSTUBER / EDIT
    Weโ€™ve woven a web, you and I,
    attached to the world, for no matter
    how long, inscribed, though poorly, for
    scant eyes, still, as bright a love aura as
    has ever glowed, tightly wound around
    our hearts, yet soaring miles above
    Moodeungโ€™s fog to warm cold February.
    Sparks fly off a round-rock fire rarely seen
    in these parts. We laugh, it feels like we
    shouldnโ€™t be here on a cold winter night,
    just a few meters from trails so packed
    during the day. This charge will never
    leave. Weโ€™ve marked this space but must
    go to where the stars shine, deer run, art springs.
    Keep my heart in your brain, words in your hair.
    Matched lifelong yearning bursts in my hand,
    fluorescent. Quick, pack what you need, letโ€™s
    flee! live life in the positive zone, expand
    what we enjoy together, bound by the luck
    that brought us this far. Where to next?
