Fool proof oven baked/roasted chicken breasts

Great site. But I could not find simple instructions on how to best brown and bake/roast chicken breasts. Seems the temperatures and techniques vary in each recipe. Is there a particular oil that is better for browning the chicken and at what temp will the breasts be the most tender and juicy? I use both larger and smaller breasts (not at same time) with a meat thermometer and cook to 160f.

Thanks much!

    Hi Ronald - In general, our cooking instructions are recipe-specific since each combination of ingredients may necessitate a different method or temperature for the best results. We don’t really do basic recipes or techniques at Milk Street as our style of cooking is more about layers of flavor and ingredient contrasts. That being said, our most basic chicken recipe, our sheet pan chicken (https://www.177milkstreet.com/2018/08/roasted-chicken-three-ways) is a tried-and-true technique for roasting chicken parts. Best, The Milk Street Team
