  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a large sheet pan. Stir together garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper. 
  • Arrange chicken breasts on the pan, drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and rub in with your fingers on both sides. Season generously with salt on both sides, then season chicken with mixed spices on both sides.
