How to Bake Skinless Chicken Breasts


Skinless chicken breasts are low in fat and do not take long to cook. The boneless chicken needs to be cooked to well-done to prevent a food-borne illness. While you can cook the chicken breasts using a variety of methods, baking them in the oven allows you to cook them indoors without the addition of considerable extra fat or grease. The chicken does not have to taste bland; you can season it with wet or dry ingredients to customize the poultry to your tastes.
