How to Cook Chicken on the Stove

Cooking a boneless chicken breast on the stove top is really simple. Learning how to cook chicken on the stove is obviously the first step and (Thanks to your Fantastic friends, wink wink, nudge nudge) is also very simple.

This is how to cook chicken on the stove

Simply place a pan on the burner, dribble a little olive oil on and spread it around so that the chicken breast will not stick to the pan. Cook on medium heat and add your choice of spices. I like using a pinch of seasoning salt, a pinch of garlic powder and a pinch of dill weed, to both sides of the chicken breast. Flip the breast after about 15 minutes . Entire cooking time will be about a half hour , as long as your chicken breast was fully thawed. Make a cut in the most middle, fattest part of the breast to check if it's done. The meat will be white, with no pink at all when it's done.

Chicken is a wonderful source of protein and is a great lean meat choice. Chicken is great with any side; potatoes, rice, vegetables.
