First, brine your chicken breasts by combining the warm water and 2 tablespoons of kosher salt in a large bowl. Stir it well until salt is dissolved in the water.
Add the chicken breasts and let it sit for 15-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 450F and coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Then, remove the chicken from the brine and pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Place the chicken in a single layer in a prepared baking sheet and brush the top of it with olive oil.
In a small bowl, add Italian seasonings, paprika, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Mix everything well. Then, sprinkle the seasoning mixture evenly over the chicken on both sides.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reached the internal temperature of 165F. I recommend using a cooking thermometer to know precisely the temperature.
Remove it from the oven, transfer to a serving plate, cover with aluminum foil and let it rest for about 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving it.
