Baked chicken breast is definitely a must-consider if you want some fresh ideas on the table. It’s suitable for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a heavy in-between snack.
- Chicken breast, fresh or frozen
- Pre-mixed seasoning; ingredients will depend on your preference
- Butter or oil
- Salt (optional)
- Brine juice (optional); consists of one tablespoon salt, pepper, and two cups water
- Aluminum foil
- Toaster Oven
- Cooking oil brush (optional)
- Meat thermometer (optional)
- Bowl (optional)
- Take out the chicken breast you will use for the dish. If it is fresh, you can proceed directly to Step 2. On the other hand, if it’s frozen, you may want to thaw the meat first.
- Brine the chicken breast to make the taste seep more in between. To brine, mix two cups of water with one tablespoon of salt and a pinch of pepper. Leave the chicken in the juice for around 15 minutes. You may have to set the timer longer if the meat is very frozen.
- Preheat your toaster oven to 375°. If you’re using the Comfee Toaster Oven, then simply set the function setting to Bake.
- Once you’re done brining the chicken, season it using your preferred seasoning. You can simply use salt and pepper. If you bought a branded seasoning mixture or have your recipe for this, feel free to use it. Just avoid salt since it has already been added in Step 2. To mix the chicken with seasoning, you can use a cooking oil brush or just your hands.
- Place an aluminum foil on the toaster oven tray. Brush either melted butter or oil on the foil before placing the chicken breast on it and putting it back in the oven. Make sure that the chickens aren’t too stuffed to cook evenly.
- Set the timer to around 40 to 45 minutes. If you want to use a thermometer, wait until the chicken breast measures 165°.
- Once the toaster oven’s job is done, leave the chicken to sit for 5 minutes. After this, feel free to serve the freshly baked chicken breast.
