Quick And Easy Baked Chicken


Quick and Easy Baked Chicken Recipe

Here is a recipe for delicious, quick and easy baked chicken. You can put it together an hour before dinner, or fix it in the morning and just put it in preheated oven when you come back from work.

Like in all of my other recipes there are no cans with processed soup or other prepared spiced mixtures with unhealthy additives.

Bake half a chicken or one chicken split in half. The chicken bakes even on all sides and the meat is juicier. 

You need

  • Half a chicken (for 2) or 1 chicken cut in half (for 4 people)
  • Salt, black pepper, paprika
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 5-6 Mushrooms
  • Glass baking pot


Rub salt and black pepper to taste all over chicken halves, sprinkle some paprika.

Rub extra virgin olive oil, make sure you add the spices and oil under skin too where ever you can.

Slice mushrooms, sprinkle salt and black pepper, set aside.

Put the chicken skin up in a glass baking dish (do not use a lid), pour 4 TBS of water in the pan (don't pour water directly over the chicken, you will wash the spices away)

Preheat your oven to 365F, put chicken in the oven (skin side up), set your timer for 20 min.

After 20 min. turn chicken skin side down, set your timer for another 20 min.

After you timer beeps again, turn the chicken skin side up, baste some of the juices over meat, add mushrooms, stir them with the oil, sprinkle some more paprika over chicken, put dish back in the oven for another 20-30 min.

Total baking time for one chicken half is about 1 hour, and for 2 chicken halves 1 hour and 15 min.

When ready your chicken will be crispy from the outside and juicy from the inside.

Serve with steamed vegetables or your favorite salad.
