Sun-Dried Tomato and Garlic Baked Chicken using Char Crust! +Giveaway [CLOSED]

I love chicken. ALL kinds of chicken. ANY season. ANY sauce. Chicken is one of the healthiest meats that you can consume. It’s constantly on my plate throughout the week, and it provides me with a nourishing amount of protein. Char Crust has the BEST rubs available, whether you’re baking, broiling or grilling!

I know I mentioned chicken, but Char Crust Dry-Rub Seasoning can be used on ALL meat, including fish. I’m not much of a fish girl, but there are some seasonings I stumbled upon on their website that makes me want to give it a go! However, for the sake of my review, I decided to go with what I know – chicken. I received two packages of dry-rub seasonings – Original Hickory Grilled and Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic.

My mom and I agreed that the sun-dried tomato and garlic seasoning sounded DELICIOUS. We’re a big tomato-lovin’ family, and anything that has that tomato-y flavor is right by us! I decided to bake two chicken breasts {but cut them up into smaller pieces}.

Whenever I bake chicken, I use my non-stick “chicken pan”. Why is it called the chicken pan? Well, because ONLY chicken gets cooked on it. I’m a real finicky eater, and I can tell when another meat has been on a certain surface.

I seasoned the chicken on a regular dinner plate {that’s how us country folk do it}. Besides the Sun-Dried Tomato and Garlic seasoning, I also drizzled on garlic powder {love my garlic powder – it goes on everything} and seasoned salt. I made sure that the rub got on all the crevices I might have otherwise missed. After seasoning the chicken to my desire, I placed them on the chicken pan and stuck it in the oven at 400 degrees. I took it out after 15 minutes to turn the chicken over and wait another 15 minutes for the chicken to be completely done.

Voila! Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Baked Chicken is complete and served! As you can see from the above picture, the chicken did get a little burnt. BUT, this girl likes her chicken a wee bit burnt. I just LOVE that taste!

The chicken was rather juicy, even for being burnt. The seasonings enriched the chicken like no other. My whole digestive system was thankful {weird to say, huh?}. I ate three pieces of this scrumptious chicken and put the rest in a Rubbermaid tub before placing it in my fridge. The next day, I had it for lunch, and it was still yummy!

I paired my Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Baked Chicken with sweet peas and sliced carrots. Superb! Below is my recipe for this dish, if you’d like to try it out yourself with Char Crust!

Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Baked Chicken

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 tsp Char Crust’s Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Dry-Rub Seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 2 large chicken breasts {I like the 99% fat-free ones from Sanderson Farms}


1. Slice two large chicken breasts into desired amount of slices.

2. Pour dry-rub seasoning into bowl {not all of it – but enough for the chicken}.

3. Using a spoon, drizzle on the dry-rub seasoning. Make sure to cover all of the sides. To achieve the BEST results, spritz non-stick spray onto the pan to prevent the spices from burning. This also adds sizzle!

4. Apply garlic powder and seasoned salt.

5. Turn the chicken over and repeat steps 3 and 4.

6. Place in the oven for 15 minutes.

7. After the 15 minutes, take the chicken out and turn the pieces over. Repeat for another 15 minutes.

8. Take the chicken out. Let cool.

9. Serve and enjoy!
