This isn't really a recipe so much as a method of making delicious chicken with virtually no prep. It takes just a minute to put together and a half hour in the oven, and it comes out nice and moist since the butter coats the chicken while baking. I made it one night last week when Hubs was out and I had zero motivation to be in the kitchen, and the results were so tasty that I repeated it again this week!
Buttery Baked Chicken
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tbsp butter
- Seasoning blend of choice (I used lemon pepper)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Coat chicken on both sides with the seasoning blend and place in a baking dish. Top each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon of butter.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
