Oven Roast Chicken Breast Recipe

A lot of the time I will settle for boneless chicken breasts but the truth is, roasting bone-in chicken breast with the skin on in the oven is far more flavorful and delicious. The chicken in his recipe is coated with seasoning and then fried in a pan for a few minutes and finished cooking in the oven. You can cook these fully in the oven if you want but the cook-time will be a little longer, so make sure that you check the chicken with a meat thermometer to make sure that it is fully cooked. Frying the chicken breast in the pan helps to get the skin crispy. I like to throw in a few cut up red potatoes cover in olive oil with a little salt and pepper. It is delicious. Enjoy.

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2 Servings 1x


  • 2 large bone-in skin on chicken breasts
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • ½ tablespoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • ½ cup cooking oil


  1. In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, thyme, sage, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Dry the chicken breasts with a paper towel and rub olive oil all over the chicken.
  3. Sprinkle the spices evenly all over the chicken pieces and gently pat to make sure the seasoning stays on the chicken.
  4. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Heat ½ cup of cooking oil in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Place the chicken into the hot oil skin-side down and cook for 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer the breasts onto a baking sheet, skin side up.
  5. Place into the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees F.). Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
