Ever single time we do a survey on the blog and ask what kinds of new recipes readers would like to see, the #1 request is always the same:
Specifically, recipe that call for boneless skinless chicken breasts.
Not thighs, not legs, not wings, all of which I personally happen to also love. Nope, everyone seems to be obsessed with the lean white meat that comes with chicken breasts, and all the better when you don’t have to mess with any skin or bones. Plus, as lean proteins go, chicken is pretty affordable, it’s also extremely versatile to work with, and let’s be real, you can make it taste like just about anything you like!
However, anyone who has cooked entire chicken breasts before will tell you that they can be annoyingly finicky to work with, especially when baked in the oven. Cook them the wrong way and you’ll end up with a dry, rubbery, tough, and flavorless disaster. But cooked the right way?! We’re talkin’ juicy, tender, flavorful, deliciousness.
