2. Coat Your Chicken

Skin on or off, coating your chicken with oil and seasoning will help lock in the flavor and add moisture to the meat. Pour a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into a medium-sized bowl and place the chicken breasts or other pieces into the oil and press down to cover as much area of the meat as possible. Then, flip the piece over and repeat the process to cover the other side. Rub any uncovered area with your fingers to fully distribute the oil. If you are cooking an entire chicken, dip a basting brush into the oil and brush the top, sides, and bottom with oil.
