Delicious Buttery Baked Chicken - another easy and yummy dinner recipe full of flavor.

Dinner is a great meal, and it’s something I look forward to, but in the summer time I usually want to make something easy and semi-quick. I’m either looking for a good crock pot meal or something simple like quesadillas because it’s hard to want to slave over the oven when you’re hot and tired. I was so excited when my mom decided to try a new chicken recipe that could be thrown together easily and then put in the oven. It’s called Buttery Baked Chicken, and it was a hit with the whole family!

We’re HUGE fans of chicken in our home, and it’s something everyone will eat, so I definitely love a good chicken recipe. If your family likes chicken as well, then you’ll definitely want to try this out!

This recipe bakes for awhile but turns out delicious and another great dinner recipe!

We love chicken too!! We eat it most nights. I can’t wait to try this recipe!! Super delicious!! Thanks 🙂


How does baking it for that long not make it dried out? It looks delicious and I really want to try it.


    I’m wondering the same thing. 90 min is too long.


We tried this tonight. That’s an awful lot of butter. I think maybe you are meant to dump the butter at the time that you add the soup mixture…?

    Lil' Luna

    Yup, which is why it’s so good! 😉 If you want less butter I suggest using 1/4 cup instead. 😉


This looks delicious! I would love it if you joined and contribute your awesome posts at my link party at City of Creative Dreams, starts on Fridays 😀 Hope to see you there at City of Creative Dreams Link Party.


I thought this was really good but I used chicken thighs instead of the chicken breasts.


Thanks for the recipe. Your website is really nice, I love the photos. Do you bake the chicken covered? I wonder how it bakes for 1.5 hours and is not dry.


Yea just wondering like others. Does it get dry choking that long? Do you need to cover?

    Lil' Luna

    It didn’t get dry for us, but you can definitely cover it if you’d like. 🙂


This looks delish but I have a question-what size can of evaporated milk? Thanks.


What is the carb count? Calories? Did I miss where this is posted?


All Wonderful Recipes. Thanks so much.


Is there a secret to getting them to brown? We tried tonight and did not brown up like the pic. Still good though!


I was so excited to try this but with 17 min left on the timer my oven was on FIRE!! How the heck did this happen?! I followed everything 100%, down to the pan size!


I would love to know nutritional facts.. Calories?
Because.. This was totally delish! Could b my new favorite easy recipe


    It’s quite high. If you use four 7.5 oz chicken breasts, it comes out to 758 calories per breast.

I was wondering about the part that you pour over the chicken- there was so much my chicken was completely covered. Your pictures look like it was drizzled- did you dump the whole mixture on the chicken? With mine, you couldn’t even see the browning of the chicken. Normal or not normal?

    Lil' Luna

    There was a ton so we actually poured most of it over and baked and then left a little bit to drizzle on top. 😉

Made it tonight….just so-so….pretty boring


i made mine just like it says and it browned and came out perfect. The butter is basically frying it.. Super easy.


I will try some this week. Can not wait.


This chicken was so delicious. So tender. I served it with rice for all the yummy sauce. It’s a keeper as the guys said. Thank you.

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you for the comment!! Glad it was a keeper. It’s definitely a fav in our home. Hopefully you can try other recipes here on the site that are “keepers” too. 😉


Made this tonight and it was a big hit…even with the pickiest of our eaters. Thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    YAY!! I Love to hear that!! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you can find other recipes on the site that you enjoy. 😉


I typically cut my chicken breasts in half…. So they aren’t so thick. Should I just leave them for this recipe?

Jack Davis

The picture and the instructions don’t jive. Not sure how it gets brown with all of this soup on top. I think something is amiss.

Tina Christensen

I tried this recipe tonight, found it on Pinterest. I saw you added some rosemary in the photo, but I didn’t have any lemons. Do you have the quantity for those ingredients? I ended up improvising, and added a little thyme and rosemary. I did use all the butter….its why the chicken doesn’t dry out. I served it over angel hair pasta….by boyfriend, he ate it so fast, then said “you ready to get married”? LOL….great recipe, thanks for sharing!

    Lil' Luna

    LOL!! Glad he liked it!! As for the lemons and rosemary, I just sprinkled some on top & sliced a small lemon and put some of those slices in. You can definitely add more or less. Thanks so much for letting me know!


I made this tonight and even though I’m stuffed, I could go back for seconds! This is definitely being added to our dinner rotation! Thanks for sharing 😁

    Lil' Luna

    LOL!! I’m so glad you like it! Thank you for sharing!
