Experimental Five Step Easy Chicken Breasts 


Let’s cook something up! 

Everyone loves chicken breasts. So when I found this five step recipe I had to try it. I love easy fast cooking for when we need food during busy times. This recipe starts out with… You guessed it! Boneless skinless chicken breasts; we have two, one for my hubby and one for myself to eat before church tonight. Of course there maybe be enough left Over for lunch too! 
First I’m gonna give you the steps, then explain the process, and by the end you will know how to make a simple, fast, roasted chicken breast.

Five Easy Steps

  1. Brine
  2. Brush
  3. Rub
  4. Roast
  5. Rest

Start by taking your chicken and putting it in salt water to soak for about 15 minutes or so; this is what it means to brine chicken. After it soaks rinse it off and pat it dry with a paper towel.

Next is step number two. Brush the chicken with melted butter. You can also use olive oil if you prefer or your favorite cooking oil. I just love the flavor of good old fashioned butter. 


I try to use Tillamook dairy products whenever possible because they have happy cows and don’t use hormones. Other good brands exist but for me as a woman who is very sensitive to hormone fluctuations it is an important factor. The better quality ingredients you use the more nutritious and deliscous your meal will be. 

After the chicken is coated in butter/oil rub your favorite seasonings into the chicken. I like to use a bit of each, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, basil, and thyme. Sometimes I add cayenne pepper for a little spice or curry powder for a more exotic flavor. Maybe I’ll use some paprika too which adds a good color. 

Step four is roasting the chicken which can either be done low and slow (350 for 30 minutes) or high and fast (450 for 15-18 minutes.) Often I choose low and slow but today I want to go fast and high for a quicker meal and a crispier crust. 

Finally once your chicken is good and cooked through you want to let it sit for 5-10 minutes to rest so it can soak up its juices. 

Then you are ready to enjoy this easy and delicious white meat chicken breast. You can pair it with whatever sides you like. Today I chose to make boiled potatoes and a classic Greek salad consisting of tomatoes, cucumbers, olive oil, salt, pepper, and basil. I hope you enjoyed this recipe.

What’s cooking

Chicken Dinner Dominique Baked Chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables.

What you will need::

1 Organic Chicken

Olive Oil

A Lemon

An Onion

Fresh Garlic

2-3 cups of chopped veggies I use carrots, squash, and zucchini
Chicken Seasoning: I use a mixture and it’s a little different each time a pinch of this and a pinch of that. Something along the lines of::

1 tbs salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp oregano

A pinch of cayenne pepper

A pinch of basil

Or more…probably more because I like things really spicy. If it smells kinda like baked chicken seasoning then you have a good mixture. You may also just buy premixed poultry seasoning and use 1-4 tbs depending on tastes
Step 1 preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2 cover a baking sheet in aluminum foil.

Step 3 rinse off your chicken with water and pat dry.

Step 4 rub seasoning all over your chicken, don’t forget inside the chicken! I start on the back, then do the inside, then I rub some up under the skin on the breast and also sprinkle on top. Often I will crack some extra fresh black pepper and garlic onto the top. You could also add Parmesan cheese if you wanted to.

Step five place veggies around chicken

Step six drizzle with olive oil

Step seven slice lemons in half. Squeeze juice onto chicken then shove lemons into chicken cavity.

Step 8 quarter onion and fill remaining space in cavity, place onion on chicken.

Step 9 add fresh garlic

Step 10 cover in foil
