Cooked Chicken Breast
To cook chicken breast on a wooden tray, you’ll need:
- Chicken breast
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
- Wooden tray or board
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Rub a little olive oil onto the chicken breast to help it brown and prevent it from sticking to the tray.
- Place the chicken breast on a wooden tray or board, making sure it’s spread out and not touching the sides of the tray.
- Bake the chicken breast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F (75°C) using a meat thermometer.
- Remove the chicken breast from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes on the wooden tray before slicing and serving.
Note: Make sure to use a wooden tray or board that is heat-resistant and large enough to hold the chicken breast without overcrowding it. You can also add some herbs or spices to the chicken breast for extra flavor, or serve it with your favorite dipping sauce or side dish.
Cooking chicken breast on a wooden tray requires some preparation and attention to detail to ensure that the chicken is cooked safely and deliciously. Here are the steps to follow:
- Preheat your oven to 375°F.
- Prepare the chicken breasts by trimming any excess fat or skin. Rinse them under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.
- Season the chicken with your preferred spices, such as salt, pepper, garlic powder, or paprika. Be generous with the seasoning, as it will help flavor the chicken as it cooks.
- Place the wooden tray in the oven for about 5 minutes to preheat it. This will help prevent the chicken from sticking to the tray and ensure even cooking.
- Remove the tray from the oven and place the chicken breasts on the tray, spacing them evenly apart.
- Return the tray to the oven and bake the chicken for 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
- Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the breast, making sure it doesn’t touch the bone.
- Once the chicken is cooked, remove the tray from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
Remember, cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts and your oven’s temperature. It’s always a good idea to use a meat thermometer to ensure your chicken is cooked to a safe temperature. Enjoy your delicious and juicy chicken breast!
