Baked Chicken and Cayenne Pepper Mix
Prep Your Chicken Ahead of Time on Sundays.
Tenderize the Meat 5 Minutes
Pull the chicken breasts out of the plastic casing, rinse and dry with paper towels. Pull out a roll of wax or parchment paper. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a cutting board. Place 4-6 chicken breasts on the paper and then place another piece of paper over the chicken pieces. Using a meat mallet pound the chicken with teeth of the mallet to break up the fibers. Once the chicken is flattened use the flat side of the mallet to flatten the surface of chicken.
Bake the Chicken Breasts 30 Minutes
Turn your oven on to 350. Using a deep sided baking pan place any veggies or fruit in the pan and add the water. Place a rack over the ingredients and put the chicken breasts on top of the rack. Sprinkle everything with salt and add any other herbs or spices that are required by the recipe. Place in the oven and cook for 30 minutes. Check at the 20, 25 and 30 minute marks. You can test a piece of chicken by pulling a breast out of the pan, cutting it in half and chicken to see if it is cooked through. The interior piece of the chicken should look moist and succulent and not tough and dried out.
