Chicken breasts are delicious and easy, I recommend adding lemon, basil, red pepper or garlic for extra flavor. The following recipe is from AllRecipes.

Ingredients

4 boneless chicken breast halves with skin

salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (thyme, parsley, rosemary) (optional)

2 tablespoons olive oil 

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces

1 tablespoon chicken broth (or water), if needed to thin sauce

Instructions

  1. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it starts to shimmer. Place chicken breasts in skillet skin side down. Sprinkle with fresh herbs. Do not disturb the breasts until the skin side sears, 5 or 6 minutes. Turn chicken.
  3. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees F, about 5 minutes. Add vinegar and butter to the pan with chicken. Shake pan gently until butter melts and the internal temperature of chicken reaches 160 to 165 degrees F, 2 to 3 minutes more. Add a splash of chicken broth or water if sauce needs to be thinned.
