Instructions

  1. Combine spices in a small bowl and evenly coat the outside of each chicken breast.

  2. Warm large skillet over medium high heat, add olive oil. Once the oil is warm, add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook on the first side for 3-4 minutes or until browned. After 3-4 minutes turn the chicken over and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes.
