How to Perfectly Bake Chicken Breasts
So my secret to a perfectly browned and evenly cooked chicken breast is to pan sear it before baking using a cast iron pan for a few minutes each side then transferring it to the preheated oven to complete the cooking.But before all of that you need to prepare your spice mix and melt some good butter ( or use some good quality olive oil ) and brush your chicken breasts from each side. Then sprinkle it with that spice mix you prepared before and gently rub the chicken with all that good stuff!
