Roasted Chicken
Makes 6 to 8 servings
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Place chicken between sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet or a rolling pen, pound to an even thickness. Rub chicken with paprika, salt, and pepper.
  3. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to oven, and bake until meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 165°, 10 to 15 minutes, or to desired degree of done- ness. Let cool slightly; thinly slice.
