Herb Crusted Chicken Breasts

Here’s a quick fix for chicken that doesn’t get any simpler.

Herb Crusted Chicken Breasts

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 2 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil extra light
  • 2 tbsp. dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  Wash and towel dry the chicken breasts.  Brush both sides of the chicken with the olive oil.  Mix the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl.  Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the chicken and lightly press into the meat on both sides.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until juices run clear.

Recipe Notes

These chicken breasts go with almost any veggie or side and especially with a nice crisp caesar salad. 

Did you know:  In Gainsville, Georgia, it is illegal to eat fried chicken with anything but your fingers.  Some politicians have way too much time on their hands.
