How to Make Moist and Tender Chicken Breasts Every Time

Step-by-Step

  1. Flatten/Pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness
  2. Salt and Pepper them to taste
  3. Prepare the pan: Heat a saute pan over medium high heat - When hot, add the olive oil and swirl around in pan
  4. Turn down the heat to medium and add the chicken breasts.
  5. Cook the chicken breasts for 1 minute without moving them to brown the side to golden ( not searing or browning)
  6. Flip them over. Cover with a tight fitting lid and turn the heat down to low. Set the timer to 10 minutes and walk away (do not peek).
  7. Turn off the heat and let sit covered for another 10 minutes.
  8. Lift the lid - the centers should be slightly pink and check internal temperature (should be at least 165 degrees)
  9. Slice, eat or use in another recipe.
    Refrigerate leftovers.
