Servings: 4 servings
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme or oregano, parsley or other herbs
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat your oven to 425F/220C. In a small bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, thyme, salt and pepper until combined.
Lightly coat the chicken breasts in olive oil, and then generously rub the spice mix on both sides of the chicken.
Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish and cook for 20-25 minutes, depending on size (see chart above). Let the chicken rest for a few minutes to allow the juices to redistribute within the meat, then serve.
