Super Easy Baked Chicken

Super Easy Baked ChickenChicken is definitely a staple of my life… a great, simple source of protein.  It’s pretty easy to get bored with plain chicken, though, so I tend to look at it more as an ingredient than an actual food (if that makes any sense at all).  I’ve found it easiest to cook a bunch of it, cube it, and keep it to mix in salads, supplement frozen meals and use for chicken salad.  I’ve tried a bunch of different ways to cook it and feel like I’ve finally found a way that’s easy enough that I’ll actually do it and also DELICIOUS (I usually end up eating a whole serving while I’m cutting it up ;)).

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

Lay boneless, skinless chicken breasts on cookie sheet and season generously with salt, pepper and Adobo seasoning.

Cook for 40 minutes.  The most reliable way to tell if your chicken is done is with a meat thermometer… all poultry should be cooked to an internal temp of 165°F.

(If I’m feeling particularly motivated, I season the chicken on both sides and flip the breasts half way through the 40 minutes.. but, let’s be honest… I’m often too lazy for that.)
