When I’m on a healthy eating kick, I use this quick method to cook boneless skinless chicken breasts. If done right, the chicken is very flavorful and super moist. Like many of my recipes, this is a method I picked up from watching my mom cook over the years. I will probably refer to this Simple Chicken in several future recipes, as it is something I eat often and am constantly finding new things to pair it with.
Simple Chicken:1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 2 free-range boneless skinless chicken breasts salt & cracked pepper 1/4 cup chicken broth
Heat the olive oil in your pan on med-high heat. Meanwhile, coat both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and freshly cracked pepper. Once the oil is hot, place the chicken breasts in the pan and sear them for about 3-4 min until a golden brown crust forms. Flip the breasts and sear the other side for about 2 min, reduce the temperature to low, pour in the chicken broth and cover (For an added twist, add a splash of red or white wine which makes for a great gravy once the chicken is done). The steam will slowly cook the chicken the rest of the way, and will take about 8-12 minutes. Allow the chicken to rest for several minutes before serving.
