Chef James’ Roasted Chicken Breasts with Queso Fresco

Cuisine: Fusion

Families are often divided between those who prefer to eat chicken thighs and those who prefer chicken breasts.

However, each piece has its own art when it comes to preparation.

Breasts are ideal for those who care for their figure, as they have less fat. In contrast, some find it a bit dry. But with Chef James' recipe con queso fresco, you'll never look back.

Plus, we make it with Mazola® corn oil, which is delicious and easy to use. With its neutral flavor, Mazola® corn oil is the perfect ingredient for your chicken breasts.
