I've found myself child in college and another out of college, married and working....soooo I find myself cooking for one quite often. This is what I came up with to accompany a sauce I chose to make for one.....the sauce is Mushroom-Sherry Sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Wait 5 minutes, then place a non-stick skillet on a medium heat element. Melt 1 tbsp butter in the skillet. Once it is half melted, add the olive oil. Stir. Add the garlic, and cook 1 minute. Do not let it burn!
  3. Sprinkle the chicken breast with the greek seasoning, half on each side. Place the chicken breast in the skillet. Cook for 4 minutes on medium heat. Turn the oven off, but do not open the door! Flip the chicken over and cook for 6 minutes on low heat, covered.
  4. Remove the chicken and place in an oven-proof dish. Pour the skillet drippings over the chicken breast. Cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Place the dish with the chicken in the oven, and let it sit for 10 minutes without opening the door.
  6. Serve with the pan drippings over the chicken breasts. I cut mine up and then poured the drippings over. Delicious!

Thank you for posting this recipe. My son is now grown and I have been trying to find as many recipes for one as I can. The chicken was moist and truly delicious.

I can't believe how easy and tasty this was...the chicken was so moist...not dry at all...loved the Greek Seasoning...I added extra on each time I think I will do a quick sear to give it a touch more color before adding the garlic to the pan...and because I used a cast iron skillet to cook my chicken in I'm going to just throw that in the oven...made for :For Your Consideration" tag game...

I made these for dinner a few nights ago.I have used the same technique sometimes to make steaks, but this was the first time trying chicken with this method and it worked wonderfully. I actually made 4 breasts. Hubby ate 1 1/2 and I ate 1/2. The breasts turned out very moist and yummy. I used the other 1 1/2 breasts to make a Chicken Bacon and Leek Pot Pie/Casserole yesterday. Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR)
