Here's how we make our favorite grill-pan chicken that is juicy, flavorful and a staple in our lunch and dinner prep.

This is a go-to recipe in our home to grill chicken on the stovetop – no grill needed. So it feels crazy that we haven’t shared this until now!!

We make this a few times a month and it is something that goes well with anything. Just make a batch and keep it on hand for salads, quesadillas, anything you want. You can add it to any bowls or pasta dishes too.

It only takes a few minutes to make this chicken and you can have it all week long for anything you are craving. And contrary to most chicken, I don’t find this recipe boring at all. Super flavorful, yet versatile.

I cannot wait to hear what you think of this!! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and Tiktok if you try it.

What ingredients you need to make chicken on a grill pan:

  • Thin sliced chicken (I found this at the store)
  • Garlic powder, onion powder, salt and ground pepper
  • A few leaves of fresh basil, oregano, and parsley

How to cook chicken on the grill pan:

  1. Heat a grill pan on medium heat
  2. Pat dry the thinly sliced chicken breasts
  3. Add chicken to a bowl and add in olive oil, lemon juice, spices and fresh herbs
  4. Add chicken to a preheated cast iron grill pan and cook 2-3 minutes each side (don’t overcook or they’ll get dried out!)

FAQS on making grill pan chicken:

  • What is your go-to grill pan to make these one? I LOVE using this one!!
  • What kind of chicken do you like to make on the grill pan? The extra thin chicken breasts are phenomenal. I love my crispy chicken thighs too but this method is made for thinly pounded chicken breasts!
  • How long do these stay good for? Best way to reheat chicken? I actually eat these cold most often, but I love cold food (I also have 2 young kids so what is hot food lol). But if you want to reheat, you can warm on a greased skillet over the stovetop or microwave.
