I personally know of a few people whose diets were stopped by chicken breasts because they taste so boring.
No. Don’t laugh. It’s true.
Plus, all that protein helps keep you fuller for longer – so you don’t snack on unhealthy foods.

Unfortunately, lots of people suffer under the mistaken belief that chicken breasts are boring. That they’re flavorless. That they’re dry, and chewy, and awful, and why oh why is this even food.
And they’re dead wrong.
Those people are dead wrong! When chicken breasts are done right, they’re succulent, moist, tender, aromatic, and flat out delicious(2). I love eating chicken breasts.
So today, right now, I’m going to show you the simplest possible way to have delicious, amazing tasting, protein packed, chicken breasts. It only takes a few steps. Ready?
This Is Seriously The Easiest Method, You Guys
ok , so the reason why skinless chicken breasts have a bad reputation as tough, tasteless, and dry, is because there’s so little fat in them(3).
That’s why this method is so good.
What we’re going to do is use the steady, omni-directional heat of an oven because it’s so easy, but to stop the chicken from drying out, we’re going to put a sheet of parchment paper on top.
The paper basically acts like the chicken breasts’ missing skin – it stops it from getting dry and tasteless. This is like a hybrid of roasting and braising a chicken – since the chicken is going to cook in its own juices it’s going to come out flavorful, moist, and delicious.
God, It’s So Easy
This is literally a foolproof method – just follow these steps
