A very quick and easy chicken recipe that is always great when in a rush! Tip: The cooking time can be shortened by cutting the chicken breasts in to halves or thirds before browning. Serving Suggestion: When the chicken is cooked, remove from the cooking liquor, slice the chicken breast in to 6 or 8, place on a bed of rice, (wild and white is a nice mix), with steamed broccoli to the side.
