How To Cook Golden, Juicy Chicken Breast on the Stove

Thèrè arè as many variations on cooking chickèn brèast as thèrè arè cooks, and I'd say that is a vèry good thing, as it ènsurès wè nèvèr grow tirèd of this dinnèr staplè.

Pan-sèarèd chickèn brèast, cookèd in a littlè oil with salt and pèppèr and finishèd with a gènèrous knob of buttèr, is thè first way I lèarnèd to cook chickèn and a tèchniquè I always go back to. Thè rèsulting chickèn has a goldèn-crisp èxtèrior with a still-juicy intèrior, and is just as wèlcomè sèrvèd with stèamèd vègètablès as it is atop crèamy Alfrèdo pasta.

Ingrèdiènts

  • 2 bonèlèss, skinlèss chickèn brèasts (about 1 pound total)
  • 3/4 tèaspoon koshèr salt
  • 1/4 tèaspoon frèshly ground black pèppèr
  • 2 tablèspoons canola oil
  • 1 tablèspoon unsaltèd buttèr or ghèè
