Chicken Breast

Okay, so many times a recipe calls for a cooked chicken breast. I like to do "brick chicken" on a grill, but sometimes that just isn't possible. So here is something that you can use every week of your life when you cook chicken...

  • A chicken breast
  • cooking oil or butter
I usually like to add flavors and spices when cooking chicken, and you can certainly do that. For this example I'm keeping it simple. Simply add the butter or oil to the skillet and drop the chicken breast in... but that's not all...

Next, take a soup pan and make sure the bottom of it is clean. Fill it with water and then set it on top of the chicken breast in the pan. Let the chicken cook for 3-5 minutes and then take the sauce pan off, flip the chicken breast, and put the pan back on top of the chicken. Let it cook for another 3-5 minutes until done.

Adding the extra weight is crucial. This will flatten the chicken breast, help it to cook more evenly and quickly, and as a result it will remain moist, pleasant to the eye, and easy to cut on the plate.
