Step 3: Heat the pan and start cooking
Once the chicken has been seasoned, heat the pan and coat the bottom of the pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Now, turn the heat down to medium and place the chicken breasts on the pan for cooking. Cook for 1 minute but, if you are using flour, cook until the chicken becomes golden.
Step 4: Flip, cover, and cook on low flame
After 1 minute, you can flip the chicken breasts and turn the heat down to low. Cover the pan and cook the chicken for 10 minutes.
Step 5: Turn off the stove
