Roasted chicken breasts

Not really rocket science here, but these chicken breasts were delish! I watch Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network sometimes, and this is how she always makes roasted chicken for dishes. I figured it was worth a try. They were so moist and juicy!

whole chicken breasts, bone-in, skin-on
Good olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the chicken breasts on a sheet pan and rub the skin with olive oil. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is just cooked.

We always use a meat thermometer to make sure the food is done and I think it took ours closer to 50 minutes to cook through.

We served the chicken with roasted asparagus and leftover pasta with cottage cheese on top. Gross you say? Try it! It's so good!
