How to Cook Chicken on the Stove


Cooking a boneless chicken breast on the stove top is really simple. Learning how to cook chicken on the stove is obviously the first step and (Thanks to your Fantastic friends, wink wink, nudge nudge) is also very simple.

This is how to cook chicken on the stove

Simply place a pan on the burner, dribble a little olive oil on and spread it around so that the chicken breast will not stick to the pan. Cook on medium heat and add your choice of spices. I like using a pinch of seasoning salt, a pinch of garlic powder and a pinch of dill weed, to both sides of the chicken breast. Flip the breast after about 15 minutes. Entire cooking time will be about a half hour, as long as your chicken breast was fully thawed. Make a cut in the most middle, fattest part of the breast to check if it’s done. The meat will be white, with no pink at all when it’s done.

Chicken is a wonderful source of protein and is a great lean meat choice. Chicken is great with any side; potatoes, rice, vegetables.

How to Cook a Chicken

Learning how to cook a chicken is easy with a few steps. First, wash the chicken inside and out, and then pat the skin dry. Place in a shallow baking dish that is twice as large as the bird itself. Use an oven safe thermometer to track the internal temperature of the meat for the proper cooking time.

This is how to cook a chicken

You will need the following ingredients:
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 Teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- One to 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, 4 to 6 inches long

First, coat the bird in olive oil and then sprinkle on all the other ingredients, excluding the rosemary. Take the time to massage in the seasonings; this will ensure that they are embedded into the skin and will tenderize the meat as well. Insert the sprigs of rosemary into the cavity. Next, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Insert the probe of the thermometer into the thickest part of the breast about two inches. Lastly, put the chicken in the oven and bake until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, then take it out and cover with foil. Let the bird rest for 10 to 15 minutes, and then serve. Enjoying a whole chicken is easily done with the right tools and a few simple steps.
