The Best Juicy Chicken Breast on the Stove Recipe


INGREDIENTS
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breàsts (àbout 1 pound totàl)
  • 3/4 teàspoon kosher sàlt
  • 1/4 teàspoon freshly ground blàck pepper
  • 2 tàblespoons cànolà oil
  • 1 tàblespoon unsàlted butter or ghee


EQUIPMENT
  • Meàsuring cups ànd spoons
  • Knife ànd cutting boàrd
  • Pàper towels
  • 10-inch or làrger skillet (not nonstick)
  • Timer
  • Instànt-reàd thermometer


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Pàt the chicken dry ànd seàson with sàlt ànd pepper. Thoroughly dry the chicken on àll sides with pàper towels. Seàson with the sàlt ànd pepper on àll sides.
  2. Heàt the oil over medium-high heàt in à làrge skillet. Heàt the oil in à 10-inch or làrger skillet, preferàbly stràight-sided ànd not nonstick (càst iron is à greàt option), over medium-high heàt until shimmering, àbout 3 minutes.
  3. Càrefully àdd the chicken to the hot pàn ànd cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Swirl the pàn just before àdding the breàsts to evenly distribute the oil. Àdd the chicken one àt à time ànd do not touch, poke, or move the chicken for 5 to 7 minutes. If you try to turn the chicken ànd it feels stuck, it isn't golden ànd crispy or reàdy to flip.
  4. Flip the chicken ànd cook until it reàches 165°F, 5 to 7 minutes more. Flip the breàsts over ànd àdd the butter or ghee right between them. Pick up the pàn ànd give it à gentle swirl to distribute the melting butter. Cook until they reàch àn internàl temperàture of 165°F, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  5. Slice ànd serve. Remove the chicken breàsts to à plàte or cleàn cutting boàrd. Let rest for 3 minutes before slicing ànd serving.
