Bought a pellet smoker last year and it makes the best chicken I ever tasted, but a gas grill works the same.
Invest in a digital meat thermometer and set the timer to go off at 165 degrees. Perfect chicken
Seasoning marinade I used yesterday:
dash of pepper
dash of salt
mix in zip lock bag and marinate for 24 hours
How to Cook Chicken Breast on Stove
This aptly named Easy Juicy Chicken Breast
recipe offers a simple method to cooking chicken breasts on the stovetop. Finishing the breasts in the oven in a covered skillet with a little broth helps ensure that the chicken breasts don’t dry out.
1: Pound and Season the Chicken Breasts
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Cover 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts with plastic wrap or place in a large resealable bag. Pound the chicken to an even thickness with a meat mallet or the bottom of a heavy skillet. Season both sides of the chicken liberally with salt and pepper.
2: Sear the Chicken In a Skillet
Heat a medium skillet (with lid) over medium-high heat. Add a splash of olive oil and swirl to coat the skillet. Place the chicken in the skillet and cook for 1 minute without moving. Flip and cook for 1 more minute on the second side.
3: Finish Cooking the Chicken In the Oven
Add 2 tablespoons chicken stock to the skillet, cover the skillet with a lid and transfer it to the oven. Cook, covered, for 8 minutes. Set the skillet on the stovetop (no heat) with the lid still on; let sit for 8 minutes more without lifting the lid.
4: Check for Doneness and Serve:
After 8 minutes, check the chicken’s internal temperature by inserting an instant read thermometer into the thickest part of the breast; it should read 165 degrees F. Slice and serve.
