Simple Baked Chicken and Buffalo Chicken Ring

Tonight’s dinner was a new creation, I concocted a buffalo chicken salad and stuffed it into a crescent roll ring.  It was very very simple and delicious, if I do say so myself! I am going to make this post in a few steps, first I will share my chicken recipe and then the Buffalo Ring!

Baked Chicken

One of the chicken breasts after it has finished baking. For this recipe I used garlic salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, and crushed red pepper.

I use frozen, skinless, chicken breast that I cook right out of the freezer.  By skipping the thawing step it is an easy dinner to make after work.  This is a basic recipe, you can substitute any herbs and spices you like to serve with any meal.

Ingredients

  • Chicken, I made 3 today (for three people)
  • Herbs and spices, just enough to sprinkle over the chicken
  • Cooking spray

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Coat pan with nonstick spray, place chicken in pan and spray with nonstick spray as well.  You could drizzle with oil or some butter instead, using the nonstick spray is a little healthier for you and easier. Sprinkle with desired spices.
  3. Bake for 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 165 or higher
  4. Let sit for 5 minutes and serve whichever way you prefer
