I have just started cooking chicken. I can find many recipes for chicken but not one for plain baked chicken breast. I find tons of recipes for a casserole - stir fry - stuffed chicken breast.

Can anyone tell me a good temp and amount of time to bake.

I baked 3 chicken breast in the oven tonight at 375 for 45 minutes and they were rubbery.

Rubbery as in too cooked or not cooked enough?

I usually cook mine at 350 for about 35-40 minutes and it usually just about right.

As far as recipes I don't have any of those for ya, but I will look>

I usually do 350 for about 50-60 mins just depending on how thick they are. There is nothing more terrible than cutting into a piece of chicken and seeing blood :puke: .

I am still in shock that you are eating chicken, I thought you were a firm "nothing with feathers" girl, LOL.

Thanks bunches to each of you - and yes sis I have had a hard time getting past the feathers. But desperate times call for desperate measures.
The older I get the more the old saying 'moment on the lips forever on the hips' isn't just an old saying! LOL

You can also dump chicken breasts into your crockpot and cook on high for a couple of hours (depending on thickness).

Or put them on low, add fat-free Italian salad dressing, and cook 6-8 hours.... they come out very tender and yummy!
