- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Pound chicken to 0.6" at the thickest part with a meat mallet, rolling pin, your fist or even a heavy cast iron skillet. This step will help the chicken to cook evenly.
- Mix all the spices (paprika, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper) in a small bowl.
- Line baking dish or roasting pan with parchment paper. Place the chicken breasts in a single layer.
- Pour olive oil on top of the chicken breast, rub over with your fingers and sprinkle the seasonings on top of the chicken. Do step 5 on both sides.
- Bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until it gets the internal temperature of 165˚F. To know exactly when it is fully cooked, use a meat thermometer.
- Remove from oven and transfer chicken breast to a cutting board. Allow cooling down for about 5 minutes before serving.
- Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
- Pounding the chicken helps it cook through quickly and evenly so the exterior doesn't dry out before the interior cooks.
- Allowing the chicken to rest before cutting will allow the moisture to redistribute inside the chicken breasts.
- Pat the chicken dry before you season it so the oil and seasoning stick better.
- To store: Store leftover chicken breasts in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.
- To reheat: You can reheat the chicken in a microwave when ready to eat. You can also eat chicken cold.
- To freeze: You can freeze chicken breasts in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 3 months.
