Option 1 Seasoning:

2 pounds boneless & skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Option 2 Seasoning:

1/4 cup lemon juice 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon lemon pepper 2 teaspoon dried basil 2 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon kosher salt


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
In a medium baking dish, place chicken, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with all seasonings. Using tongs to move chicken around to coat on all sides evenly (I place bottom of breast on top of seasoned one and then swoosh around).

Bake for 25 minutes (thinner) to 35 minutes (2″+) or until 155 degrees F internal temperature. Remove from the oven, cover with foil or lid, and let rest for 10-15 minutes for the juices​ to settle (don’t skip!). Carryover cooking time will bring the temperature to 165.
Spoon the juice over the top, slice against the grain and serve.
