Cold. Cold. Cold. Outside of my house.
Warm. Warm. Warm. Inside of my kitchen.
Crank up the oven and let the intoxicating smell of these Easy Oven-Roasted Chicken Breasts waft throught the house and bring the family to the table.
These are bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts, so make sure you rub the garlicky paste under the chicken’s skin so it will crisp up and brown beautifully. Watch the time and temperature… you don’t want them dry!
It may be winter outside, but this dish will warm everyone up on the inside!

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
3 garlic cloves, finely minced and mashed
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper (or paprika if you don’t like it spicy)
4 bone-in, skin on chicken breasts (about 3 ½ pounds)
let’s get to it…
Place oven rack in the middle of the oven. Heat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
