      Thanks Denise! The chicken is specially tasty when we use with asparagus 🙂

    This one is so cost-efficiency, tbh. Took me about 30 mins – seemed pretty fit for a hurry evening. I was actually a bit dizzy looking at the instructions, but turned out it’s just plain through. Cool idea with quick steps and simple ingredients. Crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside.

      You can see this is truly a hearty meal, so I think 30 min is worth it 😉

    I had my third time dealing with chicken breasts, each was a different one. I’m not so used to kitchening, so honestly saying this recipe is a total effort saver! I kept to the recipe but played it a bit further with chipotle flakes. Thoroughly spicy, juicy and tender as I hoped for.

    You did not give the brine recipe for the oven baked chicken breasts. Pls send. I can’t wait to try them.

    I have cooked a ton of chicken but have never brined it. I am eager to try it and see the difference. These sheet pan dinners are a favorite for me I appreciate the tip to ensure the chicken comes out perfect. Thanks

    I am learning this thing called “Adulting“ and this was my first real dinner I made for myself. Steps were easy to follow. One thing I would add: “be sure to save the last bit of melted butter and seasoning mix, you’ll need it in the final steps! I had to make more seasoning mix/melt butter for this. Might just be my lack of following directions, though!

    Thank you for creating this! Really enjoyed eating a meal made by my “adult” self!

    My chicken is raw and my potatoes aren’t cooked 🙁

      We’re so sorry to hear that. 🙁
      We’d like to suggest a few ways to prevent you from having to experience undercooked food:
      – Invest in an oven thermometer to make sure that your oven comes up to the right temperature.
      – Also invest in a food thermometer to read your meat internal temp. That way you can the doneness of the meat without having to cut into it.
      – Cooking time varies depending on different ovens and thickness of the meat. So if your meat is undercooked, put it back in the oven and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes and check for doneness again.
      – Check out our article article on how long to bake chicken. We have detailed demonstrations on how to bake different cuts of chicken at different temperature.

    It was delicious, not to mention quick and easy! This will definitely be a regular meal we make in our home. We used spinach instead of asparagus, and it turned out super yummy!

    I have a chicken breast thawing for supper tomorrow and want to try this, but I want to substitute acorn squash for the potatoes. I have never cooked acorn squash before and wondering if it will cook in time or should I start it sooner. Thank you!

    • Luna Regina

      February 24, 2022 at 11:48 PM

      Sorry Janet, I haven’t cooked with acorn squash either. You’ll have to adjust the time as you experiment. Good luck!

    I haven’t made the recipe yet but I’m wondering why you create a pocket in the chicken breast? I can’t see where you put anything in the pocket. I’m excited to make this but just want to make sure I’m not missing something!

    Planning on making this tonight, but why cut a pocket? Is that a misprint?
    • Luna Regina

      March 31, 2023 at 7:04 AM

      The step is actually optional. Creating a pocket allows us to get more of the seasonings into the meat as we rub the mix not just on the outside, but into the pockets as well. It's fine to skip this step, but we think the meat turns out better this way.
