Chicken is touted as the ultimate healthy meal – but who wants repetitive, dry and boring meat over and over again? Learn how to cook the most succulent chicken of your life!
- All you need is your prepared chicken breasts: our cooking time suggestion is for non-frozen, boneless chicken.
- You will need about ten to fifteen minutes extra for bone-in meats, but a meat thermometer will help you achieve the same effect.
- Otherwise, all you need is a good olive oil or butter, salt and pepper (or your chosen brine/spices), and your stove top.
- Flatten the breasts with a meat hammer (or the bottom of a wide glass), season lightly, and get your pan properly heated. (We’re aiming for a medium-high heat to which the butter or oil is added, creating a light coating rather than a pool.)
- Add the breasts and cook for a minute without moving them.
- Unlike red meat, we are not aiming to sear them, simply create some golden skin.
- Now flip them, drop the heat and cook on low for 10 minutes, covered.
- Remove the pan from the heat and allow to rest for 10 minutes longer. (The meat must be at least 73 degrees Celcius when tested with a meat thermometer.)
Delectable, succulent chicken has never been simpler!
