Ingredients

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper 

1 tablespoon olive oil 

2 tablespoons chicken stock 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap or place in a large resealable bag. Pound the chicken to an even thickness with a meat mallet or the bottom of a heavy skillet. Sprinkle the chicken liberally with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a medium skillet with a lid over medium-high heat. Add the oil and swirl to coat the skillet. Place the chicken in the skillet and cook for 1 minute without moving. Flip and cook for another minute. Add the chicken stock, cover with the lid and transfer to the oven. Cook, covered, for 8 minutes.
  4. Set the skillet on the stovetop (no heat) with the lid still on; let sit for 8 minutes more, without lifting the lid. After 8 minutes, the chicken should be at 165 degrees F. Slice and serve.
