Photo of Nutrition Facts for Skillet Braised Chicken
2 Servings
Prep time:
5 minutes
Cooking time:
20 minutes


1 chicken breast
1 tablespoon oil
seasoning (such as salt, pepper, seasoning salt, onion powder or garlic powder)


  1. Season the chicken. Saute it for 1 minute per side in a lightly oiled skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned.
  2. Cover skillet with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes. Do not lift the lid.
  3. Turn off the heat. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes. Do not remove the lid.
  4. Check if the chicken is cooked all the way through. If you have a meat thermometer, check in the thickest part to make sure the temperature is at least 165 degrees F. If not, cover and return to heat.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours or freeze for longer storage.
