"I use this as a basic baked chicken recipe when another recipe calls for cooked chicken. Works great for everything and is super customizable. Sometimes I use garlic salt or other seasonings, depending on what I'm using it for."

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).

This recipe sounds way to complicated. I think it would be better if it required fewer ingredients.

Exotic ingredients. May need to travel to find them. What is this chicken they speak of? How is this published and so many creative recipes sit in Allrecipes "review"? Including two of mine. I'm insulted to see this published.
