  • 4 boneless (skinless chicken breasts)
  • salt
  • lemon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  1. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken evenly with salt (about 1/4 teaspoon per side), and lemon pepper.
  2. Preheat a skillet over medium/high heat and add olive oil. Place chicken in skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes per side (per inch of thickness). So, if the chicken is very thick it might need a little longer on each side.
  3. Remove chicken from pan and let rest for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving. This same recipe can me made on a grill or grill pan.
