Buttery Baked Chicken

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!

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

  2. 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…?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

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

  7. 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?

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

  9. 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.

    1. 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. 😉

  10. 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.

    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!

    1. 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!

    Terrific dish! My husband said it was the best chicken he had ever eaten. I am on low sodium diet, so I had to tweak the recipe with lower sodium homemade soup, and less salt, but it was delicious. I definitely will make this again. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

    Your nutrition facts for the buttery baked chicken do not specify serving size. Please tell me that the 2824 calories are for the entire dish and not just for 1/4 of the recipe!
