This is the easiest recipe for healthy and tasty roasted chicken that I’ve ever found. It’s based on Mediterranean principles, so it does use a liberal amount of extra virgin olive oil. However, if you remove the skin before eating, you won’t be consuming most of that fat.
We have these at least once a week at our house, and they make great leftovers or a moist chicken salad or chicken for soup.
It only requires a few ingredients:
- two to six large chicken breasts with skin and bone
- about a half cup of extra virgin olive oil
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- dried rosemary
That’s it. Oh, and about an hour of time.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Place the rinsed and dried chicken breasts evenly on the pan.
Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, garlic power, and onion powder.
