Easy Grilled Chicken Breast on the Grill Pan

Easy Grilled Chicken Breast on the Grill Pan

Around a month and a half ago, I bought a new kitchen toy.  A Tefal Thermospot grill pan.  I had eaten "grilled" chicken breast by people with perfect black lines on it, only to have the "secret" revealed that they made it on a grill pan.  A grill pan is a frying pan with lines on it that gives your meat, poultry, fish or tofu a grilled look and taste and you use little or no oil in the process! It is a great,tasty, low-fat way to make and eat chicken. It makes the chicken breast so well (though I must confess, I can't succeed in making those black lines!).  I am going to ironically share with you my easy recipe.  Ironically, because I am so sick of it already and am currently looking for new ideas!  It is, however, quite delicious.  I just wouldn't recommend eating the same thing 3-4 times a week!  That is a recipe for needing a new recipe!  It's actually not really a recipe with amounts and all that, more of a cooking suggestion.



The Recipe

6 skinned and boneless chicken breast halves
a little olive oil
granulated garlic
salt 
pepper
dried basil and/or oregano

Heat the grill pan according to instructions.
Meanwhile, rub each chicken breast with a little oil and sprinkle the seasonings on both sides
Grill the chicken breasts on both sides until no longer pink in the middle.

Best eaten immediately (melts in your mouth!) but can be heaten up on the Shabbat hot plate.  If you reheat, try to do it that same day.

Enjoy!
