I think it’s safe to say that we have chicken for dinner more than any other meat. It’s healthy and it’s something my entire family will eat. It’s also inexpensive (especially when bought on sale) and can be frozen and thawed whenever you’re ready to prepare it.

Over the years, we’ve come to make so many chicken breast varieties, and today we wanted to compile and share our favorites in this post. From baked versions to healthy and easy varieties, these chicken breast recipes are delicious and great to make for dinner any night of the week.

Before we delve in to the recipes, we wanted to make sure you knew all the basics for baking and cooking with chicken breasts.

How long to Bake Chicken Breast + More

There are many questions you may be wondering when cooking your chicken breast, but the most common one is – how long to bake it? There are some factors that go into this including how thick the meat is, what temperature you’re cooking on, etc.

So, here are some general TIMES and TEMPS that we use when baking chicken breast:

  • 350 degrees: 30 – 35 minutes
  • 375 degrees: About 30 minutes
  • 400 degrees: 25 minutes
  • 425 degrees: 20 – 25 minutes

Again – how thick your chicken is may mean adjusting cook times, but we recommend keeping that in mind. If there lots of ingredients on top of your chicken, it also may need a longer baking time so refer to each recipe for cook times.

Curious what SEASONINGS to use on your chicken? It depends on what you like most and what’s already in a recipe, but for a chicken breast without all the cheese and toppings we like to add a little olive oil, garlic salt, pepper, italian seasoning and/or lemon pepper.

For sauces, we love our teriyaki sauce, bbq sauce, and homemade pesto.
