  • 3 Raw boneless skinless chicken breasts (mine were around 7.5 ounces each)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Dried oregano - about 1/8 teaspoon per chicken breast
  • Dried basil - about 1/8 teaspoon per chicken breast
  • Granulated Garlic - about 1/4 teaspoon per chicken breast
  • Cooking spray or oil of your choice (high smoke point oil like avocado, coconut or even canola is best)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Add seasonings to both sides of the raw chicken breasts.

  3. Spray indoor grill pan with cooking spray, and preheat on the stovetop over medium high heat for about one minute.

  4. Place the chicken breasts on the hot grill pan.

  5. Cook on the first side for about 4 minutes, and turn the chicken breasts over on the other side.

  6. Cook on the second side for about two minutes, and then place the grill pan into the preheated oven. (Note: you can transfer to any other baking dish if you need to. For example, if your grill pan won't fit in your small oven)

  7. Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked all the way through.

  8. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving.

  9. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
