put chicken in pan to sear the spices to the chicken....just cook till the spices are starting to turn black on the chicken and remove from pan. You will have to recoat the pan with cooking spray several times because of the heat of the skillet. After the spices are blackened to the chicken place in a cooking spray coated baking dish and bake chicken uncovered at 350 till done and juices are running clear ..the chicken will be moist inside because of the sealed spices on the outside.
