Herb Chicken

This is my go-to chicken recipe, so tender and full of flavor!

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
  • Yields: 3-5 Servings


  • 3-5 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts 
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter 
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder 
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil 
  • 1 tsp Thyme 
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder 
  • 1 tsp Oregano 
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Fresh Herbs for garnish (optional)

Cooking Tools

  • Cast Iron Skillet or Large Frying Pan 
  • Small Mixing Bowl 
  • Meat Tenderizer


-Place chicken breasts on a Cutting Board and using a meat tenderizer, pound each chicken breast into even ½ inch thickness.

-In a mixing bowl, combine garlic powder, basil, thyme, onion powder, and oregano.

-Start by sprinkling salt and pepper on both sides of chicken, then begin to spread seasoning mixture on both sides of chicken breasts until evenly coated.

-Once chicken is prepared, melt two tablespoons of butter in a large skillet or frying pan on medium to high heat.

-After butter is melted and the skillet is hot, place chicken breasts on skillet and sear the chicken on both sides for 5-7 minutes or until the outside is golden brown and seasonings begin to form a crust.

-Once the chicken is golden brown and looks delicious, it is ready to eat!


-I like to make sure the skillet/pan is nice and hot before placing the chicken to allow for the outside of the chicken breast to sear and lock in the moisture.

-This chicken recipe pairs well with rice, pasta, brussels sprouts, or asparagus on the side!
