I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of

Simple Grilled Chicken

Makes one breast - A chicken breast can be tricky to cook cuz it’s fat on one side and thin on the other. I like to flatten out the chicken so it cooks evenly - and then it has a million uses.


  • One boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 lime or lemon


  1. Put the chicken breast in a Ziploc bag and add about a tablespoon of olive oil
  2. Remove air, seal bag and flatten by pounding with something heavy (like a bottle of wine) until it’s an even thickness
  3. Heat a grill pan or skillet really well then season the chicken with Kosher salt & pepper
  4. Put the chicken in the pan and cook until well marked and cooked - about 3 minutes
  5. Flip and cook on second side for an additional 2-3 minutes or so (not too long so it stays juicy)
  6. Remove from pan, give it a squeeze of lime or lemon juice, slice into strips across the grain and serve
