Juicy Baked Chicken

Juicy Baked Chicken

My beginner Cookies checked me so smoothly! I received a slew of emails for easy recipes. Have I been getting carried away? My apologies, babies. We’ll go back to the basics for a bit. Let’s start with easy. breezy baked chicken!

Dry chicken is a sin and a shame. We must avoid that foolishness at all costs! That’s why we sneak butter under the skin. That’ll keep the ash at bay.

What other “simple” meals would you like to see? Let me know in the comments!
