Colonel Sanders Isn’t the Only One……
Grilled- Always a delicious!!! The key here is: DON’T OVERCOOK AND SEAL IT IN A CONTAINER AS SOON AS YOU TAKE IT OFF THE GRILL!!
- Spray grill with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
- When the grill is ready put the chicken on the grill and put on the lid.
- Turn the chicken for the first time at about 5 minutes
- Turn it every two minutes.
- Chicken is done when the center is no longer squishy. (If the center is too hard it may be overdone.)
- MOST IMPORTANT: As soon as you take the chicken off the grill place in a container with a tight lid and let it rest for at least 15-20 minutes. (This seals in the juices and keeps the chicken moist.)
Stove-Top-This has a delicious savory flavor that comes from cooking in the oil in the skillet. It only takes about 15-20 minutes to cook. Easy to cut up and use on top of salads of simply eat cold.
- Heat a large skillet on the stove on medium to high.
- Add a ~1T. of olive oil.
- Add the chicken breasts, top with salt and pepper.
- Cook for about 5 minutes and turn. (use a skillet screen to prevent splattering.)
- Turn about every two minutes, for about 15 minutes until the chicken is no longer squishy.
- MOST IMPORTANT: Put in a container with a sealable lid and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes.
** Chicken Cooking Tips: Chicken breasts vary in size, so if a recipe calls for, “2 chicken breasts (~1lb.)”, make sure to weigh them. Also, because they may vary in size within the package, when they are cooking, do the “squishy test” on each one and take off the smaller ones as soon as they are done and let the rest continue to cook.
