Preheat oven to 425.Place chicken breast on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake 25-30 minutes, until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165 degrees. Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil. Rest 5 minutes.
If multiplying this recipe, make sure the chicken pieces are spread out on the baking sheet - any overlap will increase bake time.If baking from frozen, increase cook time to 30-40 minutes and be sure to use a thermometer to ensure meat is cooked through.
