Meh - it was dried out and I followed the instructions to a “T”. Flavour was okay though.
tasty!!! quick and easy for dinner of two
It was great! I used garlic salt and no salt in the rub. It was super good and I’ll probably make it again in a week or so!

Super simple. Super delicious. 💗👍🏻

The cooking time varied for me. I had to cook 20 minutes on 450 and then flip and cook another 20 minutes. But overall a very good dish.

It was a success!!!👍

A true delight. Simple, yet pleasing both to the palate and the eyes!! A culinary challenged Dad can be a hero with this one. The brine is key to the success. Also, allow the chicken to rest undisturbed by noisy children for the minimum recommended ten minutes. Everyone, even a roasted chicken, needs a few undisturbed moments. Highly recommend!! Five stars!! Well done!!

Loved it! Maybe less cooking time for thinner chicken breasts

Wonderful. This is my favorite for chicken breasts. I have made many-many times. Thank you
Delicious!!!!! One of my favorite recipes so easy to do!
Juicy, Tasty, Quick, Easy. Add lots of spices and things without them it is very bland

This recipe turned out great! I used different seasonings than the recipe called for, but I used the same method to bake the chicken! Came out juicy and amazing! Definitely a new favorite!

Perfect chicken, easy to follow recipe.

Turned out very well! I baked it for 5-8 minutes longer because my preheat was not finished

So easy to make. The chicken was so juicy. Loved the seasoning mix in the recipe, but I added a little bit of lemon juice over top after seasoning. Don’t be afraid to add extra seasoning! Its so good!
Really moist and tender. I would put more seasoning on next time, but i didn't measure, I just sprinkled the seasoning on.
Great. The chicken was juicy and tasted good.

This is my new go to recipe for baked chicken. It was very moist and tasty.
super juicy! I just went a little too light on the seasoning!

My new easy go to way to cook chicken breast. Comes out moist every time and is loved by the whole family.
Super juicy and very easy to make
Moist and flavorful! Will try butter (instead of oil, or a combo of both) next time for more browning and crispiness. Brined chicken for 6 hours.
