oven roasted chicken breasts
while most folks are grilling today, i was roasting. i really didn't feel like standing over my smokey, hot grill today. yes, i am the grill master or mistress (dominatrix sounds even better) of this house. i don't trust the grilling to anyone, but me. i like my food prepared my way. contrary to popular belief, i don't like burnt hot dogs. anyway, i wasn't in the mood for grilled anything, so i roasted three big ole chicken breasts instead. oven roasting chicken is so easy and so dang tasty. it is my method of choice. first, i preheated the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. i then washed(old habit that i can't break) and patted dry the chicken breasts. i placed the breasts on a foil covered(for easier cleanup) cookie sheet and drizzled with a good olive oil rubbing each one to make sure it was evenly coated. next, i sprinkled a healthy dose of kosher salt and cracked pepper all over. i popped them in the oven for about 40 minutes and tah-dah-dinner is served. does it get any easier?
