15 Quick Marinades That Make Boneless Chicken Breasts So Much Better

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are a great go-to dinner option for so many reasons. They’re cheap, easy to cook, and filled with lean protein. But, if we’re being honest, they aren’t always that tasty. Often they’re dry, rubbery, and lacking flavor.

One way to get around this? Marinades. Not only do they help tenderize chicken breasts and make sure they don’t dry out, they also infuse the chicken with flavor and spice so it’s something you’ll actually look forward to eating.

From an herby pesto to a tangy yogurt marinade, we rounded up 15 of our favorite go-to marinades to make boneless, skinless chicken breasts taste amazing (really!). Some of the recipes specify how to cook the chicken (grilling, baking, etc.), but you can pretty much cook them however you like after they’re done marinading. And if you need a quick refresher on how to quickly cook chicken breasts, we’ve got you covered.

Recipe Summary

  • oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • ¼ cup hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Combine flour, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and paprika in a large bowl. Whisk together the egg and milk in a small bowl. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture, and then roll in the flour blend. Repeat so that each piece of chicken is double coated. Refrigerate breaded chicken for 20 minutes.

Fry chicken in the hot oil, in batches. Cook until the exterior is nicely browned, and the juices run clear, 5 to 6 minutes a batch.

Combine hot sauce and butter in a small bowl. Microwave sauce on High until melted, 20 to 30 seconds. Pour sauce over the cooked chicken mix to coat.

How long do you pan fry chicken?

  1. Sear the chicken. Then cook until the bottom half of the breast is cooked about 3/4 of the way—5-6 minutes.
  2. Flip the breast and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes, or until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees.

The secret to juicy baked chicken breasts

  1. The chicken breasts should be about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. If it is more than that, slice the breasts horizontally.
  2. This is important because you are going to cook the chicken breasts covered, so there&rsquos no way to check for doneness in the middle of cooking.
  3. Poke a few holes on the chicken breasts with a fork, so the marinade will be absorbed well.

Blackened Chicken

The Spruce Eats / Elaine Lemm

The spice rub makes blackened chicken stand out. This simple Southern recipe sears then bakes chicken breasts flavored with a mixture of black onion seed, cayenne, paprika, and more. It's fantastic when served over spicy rice, and makes an excellent sandwich, too.

How do I know when my Fried Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts are cooked through?

The best way to tell is by using an instant-read probe thermometer. Carefully insert the thermometer into the breast and remove from the oil once the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F. (The residual heat will continue to cook the chicken to a safe-to-eat internal temperature of 165 degrees F.)

Carefully place the Fried Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts on a rack to drain and cool slightly – then serve immediately. The inside will be juicy and perfectly cooked through, and the coating will be nice and crispy!

Baking chicken breast is one easy task but because they contain very little fat and are a lean cut of meat you have to infuse flavor anyway you can. I try to skip the brining which is one way to force flavor into the chicken but it can be messy and….frankly, I forget to do it every single time.

For my favorite Baked Chicken Breast recipe, I resort to a simple rub mixture. You could also use this Fajita Seasoning to flavor your chicken breast or this Taco Seasoning works really well, too!

  1. Whisk together the smoked paprika, chili powder, cayenne, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a plastic zip top bag.
  3. Pour the seasoning over the chicken breasts and seal the bag. Shake to coat.
  4. Store the chicken in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. (A great meal prep tip!)
  5. Remove the chicken from the bag and place on a baking sheet lined with foil.
  6. Preheat oven. Bake chicken until done.
  7. Serve!


This question has plagued me forEVER and I finally made some notes with my temp times to see what the best result is. Too low of a temperature seemed to dry out the chicken because it did have to cook for a longer period of time.

Boneless skinless, chicken breasts do better with a higher temperature because it allows the outside of the chicken to sear which seals in the juices. I use this same method for my Thanksgiving turkey and it’s been the best turkey ever for the past 20 years. No kidding.

So, 425 degrees is my go to for baking chicken breasts because it’s not so searing hot that the outside dries out but it’s just hot enough to sear the outside of the chicken keeping the inside juicy and tender.


Boneless, skinless chicken breasts will bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. This, of course, depends upon the weight and thickness of the chicken breast you’re baking.

Follow the guidelines below for estimated cooking times for baked chicken breasts:

If you decide to bake bone-in chicken breasts your cooking times will increase just a bit. You can follow the guide for my Oven Roasted Chicken Breastswhile still using one of the seasoning mixes I mentioned earlier.


Make sure you let your baked chicken breast rest after baking. I remove the chicken breast from the oven and tent them with foil. Then, I allow them to rest for 10 minutes.

This step allows the juices to redistribute throughout the breast and let’s the meat relax a bit. If you skip this step, your chicken juices will run right out of your chicken breast leaving you with aforementioned dry, chalky chicken we are not a fan of. Juicy chicken breast is the direct result of proper baking and lots of rest.
