If you are preparing chicken breast, fresh:

  • Simply preheat the oven to 400 F, drizzle the chicken with olive oil, and sprinkle it with salt and pepper.
  • Bake the chicken for 25 to 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken.
  • Remember, the chicken will continue to cook from residual heat after you pull it out of the oven.
  • Let the breasts sit for 5 to 10 minutes and then take the internal temperature to ensure it is 165 F.
  • Shred, slice or dice chicken as required for recipe.
