Basic Chicken Sauté

This quick sauté works well with your favorite pan sauce or chutney.

Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 20 min.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (1-1 1/4 pounds), trimmed, tenders removed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Cover chicken with plastic wrap and pound with a rolling pin, meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish; dredge the chicken (discard any leftover flour).

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until well browned and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Serve.
