For the seasoned oven-roasted chicken breasts, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lay 8 boneless and skinless chicken breasts in an oven-safe baking tray and brush them with olive oil. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with the spices and bake for 25 to 35 minutes. If the meat juices run pink when the chicken is cut open, it must be cooked longer.

The tandoori chicken breast recipe, developed by CookingLight.com, requires 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts. The tandoori seasoning is made in a sealable bag by combining 1 1/2 cups of plain Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of grated onion, 1 tablespoon of grated peeled fresh ginger, 1 tablespoon of canola oil, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of ground red pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of ground turmeric and 3 minced garlic cloves. Mix the ingredients together and add the chicken breasts to the bag. Let the chicken marinate for 2 hours. Place the chicken in a roasting pan and sprinkle both sides with salt, then broil for 15 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time.
