Spicy Chicken
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 14 mins
Total time: 19 mins
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Add salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika to a shallow bowl and mix together with a whisk or fork.
  2. Slice chicken breasts in half so you have four pieces and roll each one in the seasoning mixture, rubbing it evenly all around the chicken. (note: in the photo I decided not to cut my chicken breasts into smaller pieces and kept them whole)
  3. Heat 3 tbsp olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat (do not let it get to the smoking point) and add chicken breasts once hot.
  4. Fry each side for about 7 minutes, checking with a small incision from a knife in the center to ensure it is no longer pink. Juices should run clear when done.
