How can I make grilled chicken without oven?
The recipe I use works for chicken breasts. Just make sure to flatten them first if they’re not thin-sliced.
This uses the trust method, so have a pan and pan cover prepared. Make sure the pan can be fully sealed. I use a saute pan, but since it sends grease to the edges, consider something that doesn’t have a curved bottom.
Bring the chicken to room temperature. While it’s doing that, liberally salt and season it with whatever you prefer. The recipe I looked up says light salt, but I like strong flavors.
Heat the pan to MED-HIGH and add cooking oil (or butter). Make sure pan is fully greased.
Turn heat down to MED and add chicken breast. Cook for ~60 seconds or to golden.
Flip chicken, put on lid. Turn to LOW. Let sit for 10 minutes. Do not touch the chicken. Do not open the lid. NO PEEKING.
Feel free to do something else while it’s cooking.
Turn off stove. Let sit for another 10 minutes. Again, do not touch or move anything. NO PEEKING.
Your chicken should be done. Feel free to cut it up and do whatever you want with it.
If it tastes funny the first time, go ahead and play around with the timing and the temperatures. I currently use a funky electric stove, so my timing varies and I set the temperature a little higher than low.
