Perfect Chicken Cooking Method for Salads!
1lb chicken breast or thigh*, boneless and skinless
1 T olive oil or ghee
salt & pepper
Pound chicken to even thickness and lightly salt and pepper the meat. In a medium sized pot or saute pan, heat pan to medium, adding oil once hot so that it lightly covers the bottom of the pan.
Place chicken into oil and cook for 1 minute on each side, just to give a quick bit of color to the meat. Turn the heat to low, cover, and let cook for 10 minutes. Do not open the lid! After 10 minutes, turn the heat off and let sit for 10 minutes more. Don’t open the lid now either!
Chicken should be cooked thoroughly at the end of cooking & sitting. Remove meat from the pan, slice and enjoy, making sure there is no pink and it has all cooked through!
*You can also cut the chicken into bite size pieces ahead of time!
