Chicken breasts are marinated then grilled in a cast iron pan and finished in the oven. The leftovers are even better than the original meal!
Chicken is a staple in our house, and I love making a batch of this lean protein. It can be served with anything from a salad, rice dish or potatoes.
It’s also great for meal prep that can be used in salads or sandwiches later in the week. I love the prominent marks that my cast iron grill pan gives the chicken.
I’m not sure what I would do without this great kitchen tool.
How is this chicken cooked?
The chicken is marinated overnight then grilled in a cast iron pan for 5 minutes on each side.
I like to finish it in the oven on a baking sheet to guarantee even cooking.
The baking pan is lined with parchment paper so that there is very easy clean up. Who wants to scrub a dirty pan, right?
My grocery store has lots of great bottled marinades, so feel free to use your favorite. There is no shame in using a store-bought marinade and getting dinner on the table fast.
Italian salad dressing works well too.
What should I serve with Grill Pan Chicken Breasts?
Chicken is a great meal that goes with a variety of side dishes. I like to serve a vegetable and some sort of potato with it.
This chicken is versatile and so are the dishes you can serve with it.
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do because it is a staple in my kitchen!
