  • Rub chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle both sides with salt and Creole seasoning. Place chicken in a broiler pan.

  • 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).

  • 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.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Actually haven't made it yet but had to respond to snarky Clink. If you'd read the recipe carefully after 10 mins you flip the chicken and cook for at least another 15 mins. Plus directions are for a convection oven which cooks faster and proper temperature was also listed. Before attacking someone's recipe and giving it a low rating try reading it carefully all of the way through. Read More

I understand that for the most part this chicken is made to use in other recipes. I overcooked it. I have problems getting chicken right if I put it in the oven to bake. I'm much better on stovetop where I can monitor it easier. I baked it in a pan lined with foil and totally forgot the last step of adding water to pick up the browned bits. I made my own seasoning using Creole Seasoning Blend from this site---a yummy version. This leftover chicken will definitely make a great sandwich or salad. I will make this again on stovetop because it does make for an easy and delicious way to make it! Thank you Always Cooking Up Something! Read More

I made this this evening and was in a bit of a hurry and didn't need an intensive recipe with a long list of steps or ingredients. This fit the bill perfectly and it turned out tasty too! I used skinless boneless chicken tenders and Geoffrey Michaels Cajun Breakdown seasoning. I used a lot more than a pinch though as I sprinkled it liberally over both sides. I sprinkled these with kosher salt before cooking. This was simple took a little over 30 minutes and was tasty too. That makes this a winner in my book. I skipped adding any water to the pan since my tenders will still not completely thawed out. Nothing stuck to the bottom and it wasn't necessary. This is a great easy recipe thanks Always Cooking up Something!!! Read More

I sprinkled garlic powder onion powder seasoning salt black pepper and table salt on chicken. Soaked it in warm water for twenty minutes and sprinkled spices on again. It was tender juicy and flavorful. It really helps to brine the chicken 1st. Otherwise followed recipe accordingly. Read More

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 Bay seasoning and a dash of black pepper. I baked in an aluminum pan for 45 minutes and after removing the chicken I followed the recommendation to add water to the pan to make some delicious juice. I may have been able to cook for a shorter time - recommend checking after 30 minutes. Read More

Good recipe - unfortunately I read the seasoning label after loading up my chicken - it's MSG. Next time I will try Montreal chicken or spike for flavor...otherwise it's a great guideline for tender chicken. Read More
