Rosemary, Garlic, and Parmesan Thinly Sliced Chicken Breast

Here is a quick and delicious way to enjoy some juicy chicken breast,  in under 10 minutes. The flavors of the rosemary, garlic, and parmesan are well known as a delicious addition to olive oil as a dipping sauce, so I used this idea to add to thinly sliced/semi frozen chicken breast, and we loved the outcome,  so I’m sharing this recipe with you, so you can enjoy it, too. You can eat them alone as a snack, add them to salads, make a sandwich or wrap, add them to your favorite pasta, rice, or soup recipe, and so many other posibilities. This recipe is using 4 chicken breasts, which depending on their size,  can feed 4-6 people. Here we go……

4 semi-frozen (makes it easier to slice them, but you can use them thawed out chicken, too) chicken breasts, rinsed and sliced, 1/4 inch thin

1/2 teaspoon salt (Some store bought chicken breasts are injected with solution to make them juicier and more tender. If that is the only chicken you can find,  then please avoid the salt, and you can always add it in the end)

freshly cracked black pepper (I personally love spicy, but you can put whatever amount you would like)

1 tablespoon dried rosemary

1 tablespoon garlic powder

4 tablespoons parmesan cheese

6 teaspoons olive oil

non stick cooking spray

non stick pan or skillet

tongs

Mix all ingredients together. Spray your pan or skillet with non stick cooking spray. Warm your pan on medium-high heat. Arrange chicken in single layer,  and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. Your chicken can be turned over once the first side starts showing white around the edges of the chicken. Turn over and cook on second side. I like to have that nice color of the light brown on the chicken, so I turn the heat up a little, and quickly sear the chicken on both sides for a few seconds more to achieve that look, and then I take it out of the pan (your kitchen may get a little smokey). You may have to cook 2 batches, maybe 3, since we are doing single levels,  but it goes by quick. (If the bottom of your pan gets crusted with seasonings,  I wash mine for my next batch of chicken). Remove from pan, let cool,  and enjoy!!!!
