Fried Chicken Breast in the Pan with Butter

➡️ Cooking chicken breast is very popular in 2023 and especially when comes to skinless boneless chicken breast. So, I’ll show you how to cook fried chicken breast in a pan with butter to enjoy a very quick and tasty dinner with just 2 ingredients!

➡️ Chicken can be prepared in a number of different ways, including baking, grilling, barbecuing, frying, and boiling. In the latter half of the 20th century, prepared chicken became a common sight in fast-food restaurants. Chicken is often cited as being more healthful than red meat, as it has lower concentrations of cholesterol and saturated fat. As a result, fried chicken and especially fried chicken breast is a great choice for your meals.

➡️ Chicken breast is the go-to cut of chicken for many home cooks because it is relatively lean and easy to work with. To get crispy, golden skin, pan-frying is the best method. For best results, if your chicken is skinless and boneless, follow the same method as if it had skin. This will help the chicken get a nice golden color. Basting it with butter will help to keep it moist and add richness. Watch the cooking video below to learn more about the recipe for the pan-fried chicken breast with butter! 👌

How long does to fry chicken breast in the pan?

➡️ The time required to fry the chicken breast in the pan depends, first of all, on whether the breast is boned or not. Second, the time required depends on the temperature at which the chicken breast is fried. So, over a medium-low temperature, a boneless breast will require 8-11 minutes for each side in the skillet, while a bone-in breast will require 11-15 minutes for every side to cook completely. Of course, you have to consider whether the boned chicken breast is cut into fillets or not, if not, then the frying time is longer.

8 PRO Tips For The Pan-Fried Chicken Breast Recipe

➡️ Nowadays, boneless chicken breast can be bought at very affordable prices and has therefore become one of the favorite foods of many. There are many recipes for chicken breast and the simplest of these is fried chicken breast. It is very easy to cook and below I share some tips for the optimal preparation of this beloved dish.

  • for the best results when cooking fried chicken breast in the pan, I recommend using larger skinless boneless chicken breast halves of about 250-300 g/9-10 oz each
  • try to notch chicken breasts evenly and go with the cuts up to about half the thickness of the chicken fillet, the distance between the cuts should be about a finger
  • don’t forget to start frying with the notched side down because it takes longer to cook than the other side
  • put the oil in the pan shortly after the butter starts to soften and the chicken breast should be placed in the pan when the hot butter starts to froth
  • although it’s not mandatory, I recommend using a pan with a lid because the lid helps to soften the meat by keeping the steam in the pan and, in addition, avoids splashing with hot butter all around
  • after turning the chicken breast fillets, the frying time is shorter than the first time
  • serve the fried chicken breast fillets shortly after removing them from the pan as they begin to harden on cooling
  • don’t forget to pour the butter sauce over the fried chicken breast pieces, it makes them juicier and intensifies the taste

➡️ In a similar way to chicken breast, you can also cook turkey breast, the only difference being that I recommend cutting the turkey breast into smaller fillets for its perfect cooking!
