BAKED CHICKEN BREASTS                                                       Basic


2 largish bone in, skin on chicken breasts

2 Ė 3 TSP dry rub of  your choice or salt & pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Put 1 TSP of the dry rub under the skin of each of the chicken breasts.  You may wish to just use salt and fresh ground pepper. Sprinkle a little of the spice mix on top of the chicken breasts.   Putting the spice under the skin gives a better flavor that actually goes into the flesh. 

Bake for 20 - 25.  Check at about 20 minutes.  A lot depends on the size of the breasts and your ovenís temperature.  A non-convection oven will take a little longer.  Chicken breasts are done when a sharp knife poked in results in clear juices running out. 

Save the leftover bones in the freezer for your chicken stock.
