Add some flavor to your plain, boring chicken breast. These seasoned chicken breasts are great on their own, or sliced up for a salad.

BAKED SEASONED CHICKEN BREASTS RECIPE

We go through a lot of chicken in our household. I don’t quite know how else to explain it. But it’s quite impressive. During the height of the pandemic, when all the schools were shut down, a large commercial food supplier had a surplus of frozen chicken that would have normally been delivered and served in school cafeterias. Instead, they set up shop in a big parking lot at the local fairgrounds, with a few refrigerated tractor trailers on-site, and sold the chicken to individuals for a bargain price. We got a bunch of chicken breasts. I figured it would last us a long time…it didn’t. Between chicken tenders in the air fryer, and Instant Pot Chicken Carnitas, we tore through that supply in seemingly no time at all. We also cooked a ton baked and roasted chicken breasts.

This is the spice mix we used on the chicken. This mix is great because it adds flavor to the chicken, but doesn’t make the flavors specific enough where meat can’t be used in a variety of quick lunches and dinners.

WHAT DOES THIS SEASONED CHICKEN BREAST TASTE LIKE?

These chicken breasts are so savory, and juicy! The seasoning is loaded with flavors and not overly spicy. The paprika and ground cumin give this spice recipe a lot of flavors, while the chili powder gives it a little bit of heat. The cooked chicken is great on its own, or mixed into salads and sandwiches!

CAN YOU MAKE CHICKEN BREAST SEASONING AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes! I like to make a few batches of the grilled chicken seasoning and store it in an old glass jar that is airtight, it will keep for quite a while in the cabinet.

CAN YOU FREEZE BAKED CHICKEN SEASONING?

Slice it up, and store the chicken in an airtight container. You can definitely freeze these cooked chicken breasts. They are a perfect meal prep food, or great to have handy when you are running low on original dinner ideas.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH SEASONED CHICKEN BREASTS?

Much like Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes and Easy Yellow Turmeric Rice, Seasoned Chicken Breasts go with all sorts of foods. In fact, they would go perfectly with the two I just mentioned! These chicken breasts are also perfect for meal prepping. I like to cook a large batch of them and mix them into a large salad from time to time.
