Perfectly Cooked Chicken Breast

Category: Poultry, Quick & Easy, Healthy Recipes, Inexpensive, Main Dish, Lunch/Snacks

 Ingredients List

  • 1 to 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I usually do this with about 1 pound of chicken breast at a time)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped herbs
  • Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons butter


Here's a recipe for soft, juicy and tender chicken breasts - the perfect addition to salads or lunches.


1. Pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness with the handle or flat of a knife.

2. Lightly salt and pepper the chicken breasts.

3. Mix about a half teaspoon of salt in with the flour along with a little pepper. Chop the herbs finely and mix in as well.

4. Quickly dredge the chicken breasts in the flour, so that they are just lightly dusted with flour.

5. Heat the sauté pan over medium-high heat. When it is hot, add the olive oil and butter. Let them melt, and swirl the pan.

6. Turn the heat to medium. Add the chicken breasts. Cook for just about 1 minute to help them get a little golden on one side (you are not actually searing or browning them). Then flip each chicken breast over.

7. Turn the heat to low. Put the lid on the pan. Set a timer for 10 minutes, and walk away. Do not disturb them for the next 10 minutes.

8. After 10 minutes have elapsed, turn off the heat and leave the chicken breasts covered in the pan for another 10 minutes. Again, do not lift the lid.

9. After the 10 minutes are up, you're finally allowed to take the lid off! You should now have the soft, tender and juicy chicken breasts that you wanted. Slice and eat.
