To determine how long to pan-fry chicken breast, gather all ingredients and prepare your frying pan. It would help if you had a rimmed baking sheet, a frying pan, and a salt and pepper shaker. Season chicken breasts with salt and freshly ground black pepper. You can then mix flour, pepper, and baking powder and dredge the chicken breast in the mixture.
Place the chicken on the rimmed baking sheet. Allow the chicken to sit in the flour mixture for at least two hours.
