How to Marinate the Chicken Breast
The first step is to marinate the chicken breast. To do this, you will need:
– 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast
– 1/2 cup of hot sauce (you can use any kind, but I recommend Small Axe Peppers Habanero Ginger)
– 2 tablespoons of olive oil
– 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
– 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
– 1/4 teaspoon of salt
Simply combine all of the ingredients in a large resealable bag and mix until the chicken is evenly coated. Then, place the bag in the refrigerator and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes (but no more than 24 hours).

Afterwards, cooking the chicken breast is a breeze. Just preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with foil. Then, remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Next, place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through.
