Roasted Spicy Chicken Breasts

I was very pleasantly surprised with this recipe for roasted spicy chicken breasts. I’ll definitely make them again. I think next time I might try grilling them, then slicing them thinly and serving them on buns as sandwiches.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Spray a glass baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon zest, paprika, celery seeds, salt, pepper, and cayenne in a bowl.
  • Season the chicken on all sides with additional salt and pepper.
  • Slather the chicken with the mayo mixture. I found it easiest to just use my hands, making sure to coat the chicken completely.
  • Transfer the chicken to the baking dish.
  • Bake until the chicken is at 165 F internal temperature, 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • Let the chicken rest for a few minutes then slice thinly and serve.
