  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I actually used 3 because one of them was massive)
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika


  • Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Pound your chicken to even thickness, mine were about an inch thick.
  • Place the chicken breasts in a 9x13 baking dish. Brush both sides of chicken evenly with olive oil.
  • In a small small bowl, add the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika and gently stir until combined.
  • Sprinkle seasoning evenly on both sides of chicken.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. (Internal temperature between 160-170 degrees F.) My chicken took about 18 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from oven and cover the pan with aluminum foil. Let the chicken rest for at least 5 minutes. .
