Tender and juicy baked barbecue chicken breast is the perfect head-start ingredient to add to your weekend meal prep. Thanks to the sponsor of this video, FoodSaver, I was able to marinate my chicken in just twelve minutes and vacuum seal the leftovers which helps to keep food fresh up to 5x longer compared to ordinary storage methods.

BAKED BARBECUE CHICKEN RECIPE
2 pounds boneless chicken breast
1/4 cup avocado oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400º F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment 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.*
