When you think about cooking a chicken breast, there are probably other methods that come to mind other than broiling. Grilling or pan searing, for instance. Broiling seems like something you might do if you’re trying to brown a casserole or roast marshmallows or something. It’s never first on the list of cooking methods, but it really should be.
This easy chicken breast is perfectly seasoned with Ava’s Favorite Burger Seasoning blend, cooks pretty quickly, and turns out tender, juicy chicken that you will swoon over.
While this is an easy recipe, there are some things to keep in mind that will make it fool proof. First, your chicken should be roughly the same thickness all around. You can do this by pounding it with a meat tenderizer or slicing the breasts in half lengthwise. Then, you’ll want to make sure that you don’t overcrowd your pan, and that the chicken is placed in such a way that it sits directly under the heating element in your oven. Otherwise, you’ll end up with steamed chicken instead of well caramelized. Finally, this doesn’t take long, so you’ll want to stick around while it cooks or risk burning. Follow these tips, and this will be your new fave way to cook chicken breast.
