How To Cook Perfect Chicken Breasts from Cupcakes and Crinoline
Fresh Chicken Breasts
Salt, pepper, seasonings of choice
You’ll also need a baking dish and parchment paper
Lightly brush parchment paper with olive oil and place over chicken breasts tucking in on all sides.
Bake until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Start checking your chicken after 20 minutes and then check every 5 to 10 minutes thereafter until the proper temperature is reached. The time it takes to bake the chicken will depend on how thick each piece is. The Tyson Fresh Chicken Breasts I used took approximately 35 minutes to bake.
If baking ahead let cool slightly before storing.
Since I was using my chicken in the hoagie recipe below I let it cool slightly and then sliced it before refrigerating.
Make Ahead Hoagies
1 large loaf of Italian bread
1 garlic clove cut in half lengthwise
1/2 cup olive oil
Cold sliced chicken, (Tyson® Fresh Chicken prepared as above)
Fresh basil leaves
Fresh mozzarella ball, sliced
Fresh tomatoes, sliced
Pitted olives, cut in half
Cut the loaf of Italian break in half lengthwise.
Rub the cut edge of the garlic clove over the inside of the bread, one side only.
Drizzle the same side with olive oil.
Arrange the chicken on top of the bread.
Place basil leaves, mozzarella slices, tomatoes and olives on top of the chicken.
