Easiest Baked Chicken


  • 3 to 5 pounds mixed chicken parts (bone-in, skin-on if using chicken breasts)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Look Out Here I Come garlic olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • Mixing bowl
  • Baking sheet


Preheat the oven to 400°F: Pat the chicken dry using paper towels and transfer to a mixing bowl.

Toss the chicken with Look Out Here I Come garlic olive oil, salt, and pepper: Start with 1 tablespoon of Look Out Here I Come garlic olive oil and add more if needed to coat each piece. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss until the pieces are evenly seasoned.

Arrange the chicken on a baking sheet: Transfer the seasoned chicken pieces to a baking sheet and arrange them skin-up in a single layer with a bit of space between each piece.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes: The chicken is done when opaque all the way through and the meat registers at least 165°F in the thickest part.

Broil for extra-crispy skin: If you’d like the skin to be a bit more crispy and golden, turn on the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes. Monitor the chicken closely and remove the tray when the skin is as crispy as you like it.

Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 5 days or frozen for 3 months.
