Moist pan sauteed chicken is consumed often in the Kozak household. First off because it saves time, second because it’s easy to do, and third because it’s delicious and you can change up the flavor combos easily.

Today, I decided to keep it simple. I made garlic and thyme chicken with onions. Low-carb and high in protein, sauteeing has never been easier.

What you’ll need for your quick and healthy chicken recipe:

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts (cleaned and fat trimmed)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 of an onion chopped or sliced

I start off by slicing and cubing my chicken so that it cooks faster and trimming off excess fat in the process.

Once that’s completed, I place my cubes in a bowl and toss in 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Next, I then add the thyme, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and onion

and mix, mix, mix

I transfer the chicken mixture to my skillet on medium high heat.

Continue to stir the chicken every 2-3 min. In total, I cooked my chicken for about 8-10 minutes.

You can check your chicken by poking it with a fork and if the liquid runs clear it’s ready. If the liquid runs pink or red, it’s NOT.

In this particular instance, I stuffed my chicken into a delicious spice rubbed sweet potato.

The best thing about sauteeing chicken is that you can definitely swap the seasoning with almost anything you want and sometimes, I love tossing my cooked chicken in a curry sauce or even a calorie free buffalo sauce. It’s up to you!
