Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 2-inch pieces

3 tablespoons dried parsley 

2 tablespoons garlic powder 

2 tablespoons dried dill 

2 teaspoons onion powder 

1/4 cup olive oil 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Directions

  1. Toss the chicken with the parsley, garlic powder, dill, onion powder, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper until evenly coated.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook undisturbed until just starting to turn white, about 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook undisturbed until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. 
  3. The chicken will keep up to 4 days. Let cool completely before refrigerating.  

Four serving suggestions:

  1. Ranch Style: Serve with ranch dressing for dipping and smashed potatoes and green beans alongside.
  2. Pesto Noodles: Toss the chicken with store-bought pesto and serve on top of buttered egg noodles.  
  3. Buffalo Style: Toss the chicken with store-bought buffalo sauce and serve with carrot and celery sticks and roasted cauliflower. 
  4. Greek Pita: Tuck the chicken into pita pockets and top with sliced red onion, cucumber and tomato, pitted olives and plain yogurt.
