Perfectly Roasted Chicken Breast
These turn out perfect every single time, so it’s a really great, fool-proof, super simple roast chicken recipe to keep right next to your oven throughout these upcoming cooler months.
Crispy skin + juicy, flavorful chicken is very welcome anytime at my house. Add the extra garnish and you’re set to impress your dinner guests throughout the holiday season.
If you do not have wine on hand, you may substitute wine for chicken broth as indicated in the recipe.
The wine really adds rich flavor.
All of the alcohol will cook out – so no worries there.
Do not use “cooking wine” as most of those have an astringent taste much like rubbing alcohol.
For best results, use a nicer bottle of wine that one would actually drink because this will produce the very best flavor.
