    It turn juicy, well-cooked and delicious
    This was so delicious, my husband and seven year old son loved it. The chicken came out juicy and the seasoning was great. I brined the chicken beforehand and cooked it at the 450 degrees for the 15 minutes then tent covered it with foil and let rest while i was sauteing some green beans with garlic and parsley and making some rice to go along with it. My husband said i need to save this recipe 😁

    I made this and it was a hit very good thank you
    Great recipe! Followed the instructions and didnt change anything. I baked 4 breasts and added 3 extra minutes just to make sure it is cooked through. Turned out really juicy.

    This was a good simple recipe. The directions stated that it could be cooked for 15-18 minutes on high heat (450 degrees). One of the chicken breast was thicker and it took closer to 30 minutes. I also wasn’t watching how much paprika I used. Made them a bit spicy. Part of my family liked it.

    Very moist will definitely brine all of my chicken for now on. I brined it over night and had no taste issues also used my own seasoning. Great directions

    Sooo good! I let it bake for about 17 minutes and used regular salt for the brining part. Not too much though because I didn’t want to risk the chicken being salty. I used season-all, black pepper, and garlic powder. I didn’t measure anything but it came out great!

    Used olive oil; might not have rinsed off all the brine but turned out well. Will make again.
