DIRECTIONS

  • Pound the chicken breasts with a meat mallet or a rolling pin, to tenderize the meat and ensure uniform thickness.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of the chicken and let sit for 15 minutes or so.
  • Heat a skillet over med-high heat, and add olive oil.
  • When pan is sufficiently heated, sear chicken breasts over high heat.
  • Allow about 2 minutes (until lightly browned) before turning to other side.
  • Optional: Before serving, sprinkle grated cheese on chicken and broil for approx 5-10 mins (until cheese is melted).
  • Serving suggestions: Serve this over pasta, or as chicken sandwich with fresh tomatoes, lettuce and mustard/mayo.
  • Personally I love this with fried rice too.
