A classic dinner recipe that never goes out of style? Baked chicken.
And it’s a perfect recipe for a beginner cook. Or the busy cooks looking for a quick recipe, because baking a whole chicken takes a few hours!
For Baked Chicken, you will need…
4 lbs. chicken pieces with bone & skin
2 tbsp. oil (I like grapeseed or olive)
1 tsp. coarse black pepper
1 tsp. seasoned salt
Skip the deep fryer this time and make this juicy, oven-baked chicken recipe. It’s an easy, classic dinner without all the mess!
Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. While the oven is heating, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and massage the oil and spices into the chicken pieces.
Transfer the chicken to a foil-lined baking sheet and place in the oven to bake for about 30 minutes. It may take a little longer depending on your oven. The important part is to get the internal temperature to at least 165 degrees. Once it reaches this temperature, turn your oven to broil and let the skin crisp up for three to five minutes before removing it from the oven.
It’s that simple. In less than an hour, you have a full meal for your family with very little fuss. What are some of your favorite easy dinner recipes? I’d love to try them out. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
