"This is a very easy but elegant recipe that looks like you've spent hours in the kitchen when you've barely lifted a finger!"


  • 2 large bone-in chicken breast halves with skin
  • 60 ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 g garlic, minced
  • 3 g coarse sea salt
  • 1 g cracked black pepper
  • 0.3 g dried rosemary
  • 0.2 g dried basil


  1. Rub chicken breasts with olive oil and garlic; sprinkle with salt, black pepper, rosemary, and basil. Arrange chicken in a large baking dish and refrigerate at least 45 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Bake in preheated oven until chicken meat is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 45 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast meat should read 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
