I love my easy Oven Roasted Bone In Chicken Breast for the simplicity of baking these juicy, tender and incredibly tasty chicken breasts up! They're a super way to serve up a great family dinner that is healthy and affordable! The crispy skin is packed with sensational flavors that enhance the chicken flavor and seal in the juices to keep these split chicken breasts super moist!

3lbchicken breasts(bone-in, with skin - 2 to 3 lbs, or 2 to 4 chicken breasts depending on the weight per breast)
1Tbspolive oil(extra virgin)
1cubeKnorr chicken bouillon
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil (or coat a baking dish with olive oil or non-stick cooking spray).
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and chicken bouillon cube. Break the cube apart to combine with the olive oil. Add seasoning (onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika) and mix until you have a paste to coat the chicken breasts with.
Rinse the chicken breasts, and pat them dry. Place the chicken breasts, breast side down, on your prepared baking sheet or in your baking dish. Coat each chicken breast with the seasoned bouillon paste, starting with lightly covering the bone side (ribs) and then turning over to coat the breast side thoroughly.
Bake at 400 degrees (205 degrees C) for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (74 degrees C) when measured with a digital meat thermometer at the thickest portion of the chicken breast. *Check next to the bone for best results.
Remove the chicken when done, cover loosely with a square of aluminum foil 'tented' over the chicken breasts. Allow the chicken to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
