Easy Baked Chicken Breasts

Easy Baked Chicken Breasts by Custom Taste.
Mr. CT is starting his healthy kick and his go to healthy meal is baked chicken with a grain and some greens. This past shopping trip we picked up some large chicken breasts at a really great price! Yesterday I cut them into serving sizes and baked them with some herbs. Even though I don't partake in eating meat that much, if at all, I know he likes it so I will cook it. The meat we get is from a very trusted grocery store that has a high standard for their meats and we always buy organic. This is a really easy recipe if you bough a lot of chicken in one go or you need a simple recipe during a recipe rut. You could even use this recipe for a casserole or soup if the recipe calls for chicken.
