Learn how to make the most juicy, flavorful and tender oven roasted chicken breast. The secret? Bake for a short time at high temperature.

 For comfort food is it really the heavier, the better?  We always refer our comfort foods as something that is high in carbs, calories and often simple to make. These food remind us to our childhood or culture,… but oftentimes makes us feel guilty and uncomfortable after consumption. Today I am going to show you a new comfort food with Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken.  The recipe is Juicy Oven Roasted Chicken Breast with Allspice, served with whole wheat Coucous, fresh herbs (mint and dill), fresh tomatoes, curly parsley, roasted unsalted pumpkin seeds, red cabbage, grilled persimmon fruit and pomegranate.

I like to define the new comfort food as dishes that give us food for the soul that with one taste can transport us to different time and place, but also keeps us healthy and doesn’t marginalize our diets.  With the right flavors and cooking styles this modern comfort food can be just as tasty as a the rest. Like this oven roasted chicken breast recipe, I used the best ingredients as possible to maximize the health benefits.  I always pick Natural Ingredients  that are free of additives, preservatives, antibiotics and hormones, using mostly local, seasonal ingredients, minimal ingredients in my recipe plus simple cooking method ( quick, easy steps and fast prep time). I chose Foster Farms Simple Raised chicken as main protein, which is locally grown in California and the Pacific Northwest. Foster Farms Simple Raised chicken is grown without any antibiotics ever. Instead of rice, I chose Couscous since it derives from the whole grains of durum flour and it is also high in protein. As usual, I add as much fresh herbs and other fresh green vegetables into my dish to bring up the flavor and make it look more appetizing, not to mention boost the health benefits of the meal. I always try to buy these fresh ingredients from local farmers market. This oven roasted chicken breast recipe is so juicy and very easy to make. This can be ready within 30 minutes cooking time.

Most of my new comfort food dishes have a hearty dose of meat and are usually served at a warm temperature.  I may alter just a few ingredients from a traditional dish, sub in some grains for carbs, yogurt base for mayo, or even sweet potatoes for white potatoes.  Other times (like with the dish below), I just create a dish from scratch.   Some of these dishes have a high nutritional value and are perfect for healthy living. Hopefully it’s tasty enough to become a new tradition in your family, which in a fun twist will become your families comfort food for future generations. Hope you’ll enjoy this oven roasted chicken breast recipe.

    This looks so good! We try to each chicken once a week, but I’ve never been able to make it look as good. As you present! I’m saving your link… So the marinade is made with those seasonings and the olive oil? I think brown sugar probably makes a big difference too!

    I love chicken but it can be hard to find a juicy and tasty chicken breast. This recipe sounds perfect for tossing over a salad or eating plain with some veggies as a side.
