INGREDIENTS

2 medium sized chicken breasts

1/2 tablespoon freshly ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 lemon

1 tablespoon olive oil

DIRECTIONS

Wash clean your chicken breasts and pat them dry

I find it cheaper buying a whole chicken cutting out the breasts and saving the thighs,drums and carcass for later use.

Start by applying olive oil on your breasts and season it generously with salt and pepper

Heat up your frying pan or grill pan to a medium high

Add in about two tablespoons olive oil into the pan

Place your breasts on the frying pan and let it cook undisturbed for 6 minutes depending on the thickness of your breasts

You know it’s the right time to flip them when the sides turn opaque

After 6 minutes,flip them over

Let them cook for a further 6 minutes squeezing some lemon juice on them as they cook before taking them out.

Let your breasts rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Enjoy.
