Tender moist juicy chicken... every time!



I know that most of my posts are about sweets, but once in awhile I'll post something about a wonderful savory item... this is for those of you who want a simple chicken recipe without all the fuss. It's quick, easy, and flavorful, and part of a nice meal if you are watching the calories, like I am. 

Easy Moist Chicken Breasts

2-4 chicken breasts (I like the Kirkland brand from Costco)
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup flour
Seasonings (I like thyme and garlic rosemary seasoning)
2-3 tsp. olive oil

Pound your chicken breasts to a nice even thickness. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. You will need some type of saute pan with a tight lid. Heat the pan on medium high heat. Combine the flour and seasonings in a zip lock bag. Add the olive oil to the pan. Lightly dredge the chicken breasts in the flour and add to the heated pan with oil. Saute chicken for 1-2 minutes, until nicely golden brown. Turn the chicken over, put the lid on the pan, and turn down the temperature to low. Set your timer for 10 minutes. DO NOT PEEK! When the timer goes off, turn off the temperature, and set the timer for another 10 minutes. Again, DO NOT PEEK! This time, when the timer goes off, open the lid and see your chicken breasts cooked to perfection. Yum!
