Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup barbeque sauce (stire bought or homemade)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400º F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchement paper.
  • Place chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap or parchment paper and gently pound out the thicker side of the chicken until the breast is even in thickness.
  • Combine all ingredients, except for chicken in a large bowl and whisk well.
  • Place chicken in the FoodSaver Preserve & Marinate Containers and pour the marinade over the top. Use the handheld sealer to marinate the chicken in just 12 minutes.*
  • Place marinated chicken on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper and brush both sides with bbq sauce.
  • Bake for ten minutes, remove from oven, flip and brush with more barbeque sauce. Bake for another five, flip again and brush with more barbeque sauce and cook for another five minutes. Total cook time will be twenty minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160º F (the chicken will reach 165 as it cools - which is the safe temperature for cooked chicken).
  • Once the chicken is cool, I vacuum seal it in the FoodSaver vacuum seal bags (you can also store the chicken in FoodSaver Preserve & Marinate Containers.
  • Store in the fridge for up to one week and in the freezer for months.

Notes
