Baked Chicken Recipes and Ideas

Simple and easy ways to please your party guests

These recipes aren't only family favorites, they will work nicely for your party.

Baking chicken adds flavor, moisture and texture for many reasons. Just as with other cooking methods, time and temperature play the biggest role. We're always looking for 165° F internal temperature to be completely cooked and ready to serve, using a chef's piercing thermometer to be sure.

Party fare usually asks for smaller, bite-size pieces. We often bake larger cuts of chicken, and portion into toothpick sizes and larger. But for dinner parties, baked chicken is a standard that's hard to beat.

Here's a few of our most requested recipes for baked chicken:
