This easy baked chicken is super-fast and oh so delicious!

It was given to me by who else? Yes, that would be Shelley!

When you are really pressed for time, this is a great dish. It always comes out perfectly and the prep time is just minutes! If you have young children at home  they will love it. If you need to get dinner on the table quickly, this is a fabulous recipe.

The skin on the chicken comes out crispy every time and the meat is always moist. My family has enjoyed it for years!

Just make sure you make enough, because everyone will ask for more!
