Roasting chicken breasts that remain moist and tender is SO simple with my new NuWave Oven! Quick and easy dinner doesn’t get simpler than this!

When I decided to try this super-simple recipe, my intention was to have some chicken breasts prepared for the week, that we could use on salads, in quesadillas, in sandwiches or on mini pizzas, etc. — you know…quick-fix lunch things.  What actually happened blew my mind!  I have never had white meat chicken that was so delicious, so moist and so beautiful.  I started out making lunch fixins’ and ended up making a beautiful meat entree that you (or I) would be proud to serve to guests at a dinner party!  The genius new kitchen appliance that made this possible is my NuWave oven (which I have put a lot of miles on in just one week :) ).  If you have never tried one, you will be amazed at all it can do.  I will be posting a series of recipes, this week that I have made in it.  The versatility is incredible!  This is the one kitchen appliance you will keep on your counter at all times.

Moist, Juicy and Flavorful Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts: Fast & Easy!
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (I had 7 HUGE ones, that I bought for $1.97/lb, which was only $9.87 total)
  • seasoning salt (Just use your favorite. I used Country Bob's and it was amazing!)
  1. Season the top side of the chicken breasts. Shake the seasoning salt liberally over the meat to throughly coat it.
  2. Using a fork, I place the chicken breasts in the NuWave oven on the 4-inch rack, laying them seasoned-side-down.
  3. Then use your seasoning salt, again, to liberally coat the other side of the chicken and place the cover on the NuWave oven.
  4. Leave the NuWave on high power (It automatically is defaulted to this, unless you change it. high power is 350 degrees.) and set cook time for 10 minutes.
  5. Hit start and wait for the timer to beep. When the timer goes off, tilt the cover back onto the holder and your chicken is ready to turn. Use a fork and flip each piece.
  6. Replace the cover and set a cook time of ten minutes, for the second side. My boneless skinless chicken breasts were huge and in the end, I added another three minutes, for a total of 13 minutes on the second side.
  7. Your temptation, now, will be to eat them immediately, but if you leave the lid on your NuWave and allow the chicken to rest for about ten minutes, before serving them, you will experience the most flavorfully moist and juicy white meat chicken you have ever eaten.
  8. Serve to guests as part of a very frugal and delicious meal!

This roasted chicken was so unbelievably juicy and tender. The NuWave oven took all the work out of the preparation and created a succulent, flavorful main dish, in a fraction of the usual time.

The results of this delicious discovery were two-fold.  First of all, I realized that for less than ten dollars, I had prepared a main dish worthy of a company dinner, meaning this could be used to frugally prepare a wonderful dinner party and it was done in only TWENTY THREE MINUTES!  Amazing!  Honestly, the chicken breasts I cooked were so huge, that had I planned on serving them as an entree, I would likely have cut most of them in half, making 12-14 servings for under $10!  I love that!  Secondly, I was so impressed with the way this chicken turned out, I went immediately to the grocery store and picked up a bird to try something I have never done before — roasting a whole chicken.  Let’s just say, “I’m fabulous!”  :)  and I can’t wait to show you how easy and delicious that was!  Watch for the recipe.

    Julie, it’s the most amazing thing! It uses infrared heat in combination with convection and with conduction (like our regular ovens). I’ve never seen anything that can seal in flavors and juices like it can. I’m pretty excited!

    P.S. Right back atcha! ♥ :)

      Buy it for him for Father’s day or Birthday.. this way he will become involved. It’s the best way…you can of course make the meals !!

    This would be great for us busy moms who feel like not enough time to spend with the family. I see it even dehydrates food my husband would love that.

    My boyfriend will eat anything you put in front of him, therefore, he thinks everything tastes good. When we sit down to dinner, I’ll ask how he likes it. His response everytime is “It’s not bad”. I made this chicken tonight and his response was “This is really good!” It was so simple and so delicious. Will definately be making it often!

      Jean, yay for Dad! What a great gift! The NuWave ovens are so simple to use and make excellent results pretty much a given, so MY husband loves it, too.

      I’m so glad you took the time to stop and visit, today! Have a blessing-filled week!

    I also have a new wave and love it. Many times I put potatoes on the bottom rack and chicken on the top. Roasted potatoes and chicken in 30 minutes. (taters take a bit longer, so start them first)
    I have done brownies also. I have done whole sweet potatoes too. I love the quick ease of it. I like that I am not heating up the house with the oven and using less electricity. My husband likes the nice juicy chicken. I have done pork chops too. Those I always struggled with being dry whether I pan cook or oven back them. Didn’t always like them in the crock pot, so the NuWave has been a great resource for us.
    Enjoy your new ‘toy’ I love ours.

      Kelle, that’s great encouragement! Thanks, so much! I have definitely done the brownies in there and they were great. I also did a meatloaf that was scrumptious! It just makes so much sense to use less electricity and save time to produce exceptional food, doesn’t it!!?! I hope you’ll stop by and visit, again, soon. Have a blessing-filled weekend!

      Kim, yes, I have used frozen. The tend to be much thinner than the fresh ones I have cooked, so even frozen, I start with these times and then adjust timing to get to the 160 degree internal temperature.

      The NuWave will come with a guide that has suggested timing for both fresh and frozen chicken, too.

      Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit. I appreciate you being a Busy-at-Home reader.

      Have a blessing-filled weekend!

    I’ve had my nuwave oven for almost 4 years now, I even got one for the in laws, and we all love it! Chicken is definitely one of our favs to cook in it. Btw, those look really good!thanks for sharing!

      Lydia, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who was unhappy with their NuWave. They really are extraordinary! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop and visit, today. Have a blessing-filled week!

        Your chicken looks fabulous! I was searching Pinterest for Nuwave recipes & that’s how I came to your site.
        My Nuwave Oven pro arrived today & I haven’t unboxed it yet. I did watch the DVD & skimmed through the reicpe book.
        I’m anxious to see how frozen chicken turns out because I always forget to thaw it in the fridge for the evening meal. Have you ever baked whole potatoes in it?
        I’m going to search your site and see what else you’ve cooked with the oven! I bought the Nuwave PIC a few months and I still haven’t unboxed it yet. I need to get that out and learn how to use it too.
        Thanks for sharing the recipe.

          Rhoda, I have made home fries in it, but never thought to bake whole potatoes. I’m sure it would work great! You’re gonna love the PIC, too. It’s my favorite!
