Mom's Baked Chicken


This is really easy, and Emily loved it and requested it. (Anna thinks that all we eat is chicken but that is not true. But it is true that Emily decided to become a vegetarian when she was about 5 after she saw the movie Chicken Run, but then the only meat she allowed back into her diet shortly thereafter was, oddly, chicken.)
4 chicken half-breasts, bone in
Earth Balance, natural buttery spread, original (margarine in a tub, from Whole Foods or wherever)
Original Spike gourmet natural seasoning
Preheat oven to 450F. Remove skin from the chicken breasts, rinse, and place, bone-side-down, in a 9X13 baking dish, spaced apart. (You can use a glass or ceramic dish, or metal. If you use metal you can line with foil for easier clean-up.)
Put a couple of dots of margarine (pronounced by my grandmother, who made chicken this way, MAR’-JAR-EEN) on the chicken, then sprinkle pretty generously with Spike. Pop in the oven, bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, till it’s done but not too done J
