  1. Preheat convection oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Rub chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle both sides with salt and Creole seasoning. Place chicken in a broiler pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Flip chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Remove chicken from pan. Pour water into the pan, while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Add more water if needed to dislodge the browned bits; serve alongside chicken.

Wow. This was so easy and turned out delicious! Rather than rub the olive oil on I sprayed it on both sides with my oil spritzer, sprinkled with sea salt, and a fairly heavy sprinkling of Old Ba...
