Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Season chicken breast with salt, pepper, paprika and set aside.
  • In a small bowl mix together the butter, Italian seasoning, parsley, and garlic. Set aside.
  • In a cast iron skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. When the skillet is really hot add chicken breast. Sear until golden. It’s about 1-2 minutes each side.
  • Pour garlic butter mixture over the chicken breast. Place skillet in the oven and cook until cooked through. It’s about 20-30 minutes or until chicken breasts gets to an internal temperature of 165F.

Notes

  • Click HERE to watch the web stories for this recipe.
  • Fresh garlic tastes a lot better than pre-minced garlic, so I recommend you use fresh garlic cloves.
  • Get chicken breasts similar in size, so they cook evenly.
  • If you don't have a cast-iron skillet, sear the chicken breasts in a regular pan and transfer them to a baking dish or lined sheet pan to finish in the oven. 
  • To store: Store leftover chicken breasts in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge. 
  • To reheat: You can reheat in the microwave when ready to eat. You can also eat chicken cold.
  • To freeze: Freeze the cooked chicken breasts in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 3 months.
