Description

This easy and delicious recipe is a great way to spice up your Whole30 chicken!


Scale

Ingredients

For the Picante Seasoning:

  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

For the Chicken Breasts:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp of picante seasoning
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

For the Picante Seasoning:

Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix together until well blended.  (Store in airtight container for later use.)

For the Chicken Breasts:

Preheat oven to 400°F (if you have a commercial grade oven, like I do, cook at 375°F).  Rub each chicken breast with ¼ of the picante seasoning (about ¾ tsp per piece). Next drizzle each one with extra virgin olive oil (divide evenly across the 4 chicken breasts) and rub the oil and seasoning all over. Then salt each breast with about ½ tsp of salt.

Place on a sheet pan with parchment paper and bake for 30 mins.  Then, baste them with their own pan juices and fat and cook for 5 more minutes.  (add another 5 minutes to cooking time if they are not brown enough.)


Notes

Teri’s short cut: Double the recipe so that you have it on hand, ready to go.  Great for chicken salad, lunch to go or even breakfast.
