I’ll be the first to admit that there is nothing sexy about these Grilled Rosemary Chicken Breasts. They are exactly what they sound like, BUT they are fast, easy, and consistently juicy.
And don’t we all need a fail-safe, go-to chicken breast recipe?
I abhor dry chicken, so over the years I have developed some easy cooking methods that consistently deliver moist, juicy chicken with minimal risk of over-cooking. Hooray!
The pan-sear and then bake method is one of my favorites like in this Easy Tomato Chicken Bake or this Maple Chipotle Barbecued Chicken (ignore the photos in this one; it’s one of our favorite dishes!).
And roasted chicken is always a safe bet.
But chicken in the grill pan is my new favorite method! I gave you a sneak peak on this fabulous salad!
A simple rub of salt, pepper and fresh rosemary are all you need to create a flavorful chicken breast that is as good on a salad as it is on it’s own!
My secret? Cooking the breasts under the weight of a cast iron pan. The cast iron pan has the same function as the bricks in “brick chicken” but it is something I actually have in my kitchen…unlike bricks…those belong outside. Just sayin’.
Perfectly cooked chicken in 12 minutes? Now that is something worth getting excited about!
