The inspiration for one of my favorite weeknight chicken dinners is all thanks to my fab mother-in-law.  One day I happened to ask her for a favorite, easy dinner option – and she suggested baked chicken breasts.  Somehow, until that point, I had cooked chicken every which way one could, but somehow, never baked a breast.

I went home energized and curious, hit the google machine, and landed on this recipe which I use for the temperature and time only. SPOILER: 400 degree oven, bake 10 minutes first side, 15 minutes second. I put tinfoil on the baking sheet (zero mess!), pour olive oil on the chicken breasts (both sides) and sprinkle with Borsari (my favorite seasoning ever, recommended by a dear friend).

In the oven, and that’s it!

SO good, loved by all.

PS. I usually serve with these Quick Baked Potatoes and Butter lettuce (fresh, or bagged!) with cut up apples, carrots, and Newman’s Own Balsamic Vinagrette.
