Step 1

Start with fresh or defrosted chicken breasts.

Step 2

Pound your chicken breasts to an even thickness by placing your chicken breast smooth-side up between two layers of plastic adding a drop or 2 of oil so the chicken doesn't stick, to a large disposable plastic bag and go to town. Start with the thickest part of the meat and strike it, working outward until the breast has a uniform thickness all over.

Step 3

Step 4

Sprinkle both sides of your chicken with salt, pepper, and/or your preferred spices before it goes on the heat.

Step 5

Heat pan over medium to medium-high heat, grease with cooking spray or a drizzle of oil, and add your chicken to the pan. Cook for 5-8 minutes per side. Turn heat down if chicken begins to burn.

Step 6

Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature of your meat. Pull the chicken breast when it reaches 160 degrees and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes.

Step 7

Deglaze the pan with 1 or 2 tablespoons of chicken broth and pour over resting chicken.
