Print Recipe


  • 4 large chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Drizzle the oil over the chicken breasts.
  • Combine the brown sugar, paprika, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper and rub it all over the chicken breasts until evenly coated.
  • Place the chicken on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or in a greased casserole dish.
  • Bake in the oven for 16-18 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.



  • Use an instant read thermometer to make sure that the chicken is cooked through, it should register at 165F. The chicken breasts should be an even white color throughout.
  • Let the breasts rest under some tented foil for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • If you like things spicy, try adding a little cayenne to the seasoning mix.
