TOP TIPS FOR THE BEST GARLIC ROSEMARY CHICKEN:

 
  • After you season chicken breasts with the herbs and spices mixture, place them in a Ziploc bag. Marinate the bag overnight, or for 4-5 hours. The perfectly tender chicken breast meat will be guaranteed!
  • Set the oven rack in the middle of the oven and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil for easy clean-up!
  • Different sized chicken breasts cook in different amounts of time. Choose chicken breasts of the same size.
  • According to the U.S. government food safety guidelines, chicken meat should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Insert a reliable meat thermometer into the center of the breast to determine the temperature.
  • Alternatively, you can check to see if your chicken breast is done by making a medium cut into a breast; there should be no pink inside and the juices should run clear.
