Italian Seasoned Chicken

Time for another "let's throw random spices together" marinade!

Italian Seasoned Chicken

This doesn't taste Italian. In fact, it tastes kind of like KFC, but not fried. Pretty decent, overall. I roasted some potatoes with it (just some garlic salt and pepper, some butter, and some chopped potatoes...baked at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes), and it was a great meal.

-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
-1 cup oil
-1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
-1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
-1 teaspoon paprika
-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
-1/2 teaspoon oregano
-1/2 teaspoon sage
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
-1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1. Combine all ingredients. Let set in refrigerator for 1-24 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
3. Place chicken breasts in 9 by 13 baking pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until center of each breast registers 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.

Mmm, I love that you used cinnamon and nutmeg in the seasoning. I'm sure this chicken tastes totally delicious. Great job!

The addition of cinnamon and nutmeg sounds fantastic!

I read an article recently about cinnamon being amazing for health, so I have been trying to incorporate it in more than just baking. It added a nice taste to the chicken that I didn't expect. :)
