Simple Sautéed Chicken

Watch the chicken closely when cooking over medium-high heat or you might easily burn it. Use an instant read thermometer or slice a breast in half to check for doneness.
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully add the chicken evenly into the pan. Cook on one side for 5-7 minutes, lifting carefully periodically to check for a golden color and avoid burning. Flip the chicken and season the exposed side of the poultry with salt and pepper. Cook for another 5 minutes. Add the garlic to the pan and toss with the chicken to coat well. Continue cooking for 1-2 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 180 degrees or no pink remains in the center of each piece. If desired, serve the chicken with a tangy fruit-based sauce.
