15 Bone-in chicken breast recipes for dinner that are super flavorful and easy to make!
There’s nothing like chicken dinner and using bone-in chicken breasts is one of my favorites. They are a nice and juicy inexpensive cut of meat.
What is a Bone-in Chicken Breast?
A bone-in chicken breast is just what it sounds like! It’s a chicken breast that still has the rib bone attached.
While it’s just called a bone-in chicken breast, most places will sell these chickens as split chicken breasts as a full chicken breast contains two combined breasts.
So the two are just basically split in half and sold in the stores.
They’re typically sold with the skin on which makes them nice and crispy when baked, roasted, grilled, or air fried!
How to Store Split Chicken Breasts
Raw split chicken breasts can be stored in the freezer separated and sealed in either a freezer Ziploc bag, aluminum foil, or plastic to avoid freezer burn and should be used within 9 months for freshness.
After being cooked, the bone-in chicken breasts will last 3 to 4 days stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
