Oven baked chicken breast ingredients placed on a gray table
  • Chicken Breast – Skinless and boneless chicken breast is best for baking in the oven, but you can also use bone-in breast if that’s handy for you
  • Seasoning Powders – Basic seasoning powders like cumin, ginger, garlic, black or white pepper powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper are used here in this recipe. But feel free to modify the seasonings according to your taste preferences

Temperature for Baking Chicken Breasts

The temperature to roast or bake the chicken breast may vary depending on the size of the breasts. However, I have shared some of the ideal and recommended temperature settings and times below for making things simple and clear. But whatever the temperature setting, I recommend always checking the internal temperature of the chicken. The safe and minimal internal temperature recommended by FDA is 165°F for poultry and you could also cook up to higher temperatures according to your preferences.

  • 425°F – The breast may take 15 to 20 minutes to cook
  • 400°F – It takes 20 to 25 minutes to cook
  • 375°F – It may take up to 30 minutes to cook
  • 350°F – The chicken may take 30 to 35 minutes to cook evenly

Tips

  • Seasoning – I have used a simple and basic seasoning for making this Baked Chicken Breast that delivers a flavorful and tasty dish
  • Brining the breast – Pounding and brining the breast is one of the important steps in achieving the perfect juicy breast. However, cutting the breast in half and roasting them at a perfect temperature also delivers the same results
  • Baking Temperature – Baking the chicken breast in preheated oven at 425°F for about 15 to 20 minutes delivers tender, and juicy breasts. But I have also listed some recommended temperature settings in the post for more options
