Is it possible to bake bone-in chicken breasts without drying them out?

Recommended Posts

The trick is not to overcook them. If necessary, use a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast, and cook them *just* to 165 (not a degree past!). Remember that when you remove them from the oven, they usually continuing rising in temp for a few minutes, so I usually take mine out at 160-162. USDA recommends 165.

Sure, cover them in Healthy Request Cream of Chicken soup--straight from the can, not diluted, the condensed kind (Campbell's). If you brown them briefly first (just to a light tan), it will only take about 30 minutes in a covered pot to bake to doneness on low heat. And they will be juicy, and you'll have a nice gravy for rice.
