Dad's Plain Chicken Breast is the delicious combination of a premium boneless and skinless breast smothered with your favorite seasoning, sauce or marinade. Plus, it always cooks up plump, lean and meaty, and the plain chicken breasts are always in our case.

For additional cooking instructions, please see the chef's tips and the USDA cooking recommendations.

1. Oven

Bake or broil. Baking is such a nice low maintenance way to prepare these. Set your oven to 350°F. Then place the breast on a nonstick baking pan and cook for 20-40 minutes.

Our flavored breasts need no additional seasoning. They are perfect as is. The plain breast is a blank canvas waiting for your creative inspiration!

2. Grill

Place chicken on surface of grill 6" to 8" from heat. Over medium heat, grill for 18-25 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally. When chicken breasts are cooked to juicy, tender perfection, pierce them with a fork. Juices should run clear. Cut with a knife; the meat should be opaque. 

3. Stove Top    

Cut breasts into 1” cubes and pan sear with your choice of fresh, in-season veggies for a great stir fry. Then add some teriyaki glaze for a little Asian flair. Pair this with some fragrant jasmine rice.

4. Crock Pot 

These make the best shredded chicken sandwiches going. Add some broth to the pot with the breasts and let ‘er rip. For something a bit different, add some steak sauce to the pot prior to turning it on. Steak sauce with chicken? It may sound weird ... until you try it.

5. Smoking

Smoked Dad’s Chicken Breasts are AMAZING, probably the only thing that actually improves the already fantastic seasoned breasts. When smoking these, don’t let them go too long or they will go dry.

6. Charcoal

Bring coals to medium heat. Then place these premium chicken breasts on the grill and watch them cook up lean and tender in about 20 minutes. Add steaming baked potatoes and a crisp green garden salad for a terrific meal!
