To create grilled chicken, start by heating a cast iron skillet or stainless steel pan to high heat. Using preheated oil will help you create a friendly, golden crust on your chicken. It is essential to leave the meat alone for at least two to five minutes before flipping it. The chicken breast should be placed in the hot skillet without moving or turning it while it cooks.
Before cooking, pat the chicken dry. Use a paper towel or a clean dish towel and dry it with a paper towel. Avoid dripping the chicken with water.
