    In 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken in butter 5 to 10 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Transfer to a plate.

Expert Tips

  • Searing chicken in a pan on the stovetop, then finishing in the oven is a classic restaurant technique that frees up burners while ensuring a succulent end product that’s less likely to overcook or burn.
