Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 pounds chicken breast (about 2 large chicken breast)
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon (divided)
  • 3 garlic cloves (mashed)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon oil

Instructions

  •  Season the chicken with salt, black pepper, and garlic. I like to use my mortar and pestle to combine these ingredients. Next, add the juice of half of a lemon.
  • Next, add the oil to a nonstick pan on medium-high heat, and add the chicken breast to the skillet.
  • Cook the chicken breast for about 3  to 5 minutes each side or until a golden brown color is obtained. Add the unsalted butter and some lemon juice and cook 2 minutes and remove from the stove. Let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

Serve with your favorite salad, some grains or with some sweet fried plantains
