  • 2 ½ tbsp paprika

  • 2 tbsp garlic powder

  • 1 tbsp sea salt

  • 1 tbsp onion powder

  • 1 tbsp dried thyme

  • 1 tbsp ground cayenne pepper

  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper

  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, sea salt, onion powder, dried thyme, ground cayenne pepper, and ground black pepper. This will be your spice rub.

  3. Take the skinless, boneless chicken breast and pat it dry with paper towels.

  4. Rub the spice mixture generously over the entire surface of the chicken breast, making sure to coat it evenly.

  5. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, place the chicken breast in the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.

  6. Transfer the partially cooked chicken breast to a baking dish or sheet lined with aluminum foil.

  7. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breast, so it's best to use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.

  8. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing or serving.

  9. Serve the spicy chicken breast hot as a main dish, along with your choice of sides like rice, vegetables, or a salad.
