Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly butter a baking dish.
  2. Stir 1/4 cup melted butter and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Arrange chicken in the baking dish. Brush butter mixture onto the chicken until thoroughly coated, pouring any extra over the chicken.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 30 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I used this recipe tonight in place of the way I usually roast chicken breasts, the difference being that I use bone-in, skin-on chicken. Then we discard the bones and skin---but they add so much flavor to the chicken that we really don't need anything else to go with this. In place of the salt I used Papa's Seasoning from this site because it is such a flavorful blend of spices. I use Trader Joe's package of Kosher Chicken Breasts (two halves to a package), and so I halved the recipe. I really liked the butter and will continue to do so now. Yum! It was really tasty! Thanks, jifiner25!

These worked great! I usually bake my chicken in the oven w/ evoo, salt, pepper and garlic powder, but I wanted to try this using the butter. I did add some pepper and garlic powder (I guess that made this 5 ingredient baked chicken, lol), but used the cooking method...it was very good...nice and flavorful! I used the chicken to make chicken salads for dinner. I do like my usual evoo, b/c it's a bit more healthy, but I would totally make this again, as it was very good! Thanks for sharing. :)
