Easy Garlic Chicken

This simple and delicious recipe is my go-to chicken recipe. I serve it as is with a side of honey roasted carrots and blooming potatoes. I also use this recipe if I need cooked chicken for slow cooker chicken noodle soup or chicken and black bean casserole and haven’t cooked a whole chicken in a while.

Easy Garlic Chicken is easy to make – I just mix up the spices, rub them on the chicken breasts, and toss them in the oven. There aren’t any extra steps in this recipe, so it’s perfect on busy nights when you don’t have a lot of time or energy, but also want something healthy.

In this recipe, I call for 2 chicken breasts – which is perfect for my little family of four (without leftovers). It’s also the amount of chicken generally called for in most casseroles and soups. If you want to double or triple the recipe, just double or triple the spices. The cook time remains the same.
