3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness (4 average-sized breasts)
1 to 2 teaspoons 21 Salute Seasoning or poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
1/2 cup white wine* or chicken broth, or as necessary
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, or more if you want extra sauce
1 tablespoon garlic, finely minced; or to taste
2 teaspoons fresh parsley, optional for garnishing
To a large skillet, add the olive oil, pounded chicken, evenly season with 21 Salute, salt, pepper, and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
Do not touch, move, or disturb the chicken while it is searing. After 5 minutes, flip chicken over. It should have a medium golden color. For thicker/bigger chicken breasts, sear for 6-7 minutes.
Allow chicken to cook on the second side for about 5 minutes, or until done and cooked through. Again, do not disturb the chicken while it’s searing.
Remove chicken with a slotted spatula and place it on a plate to rest.
Using caution, deglaze your skillet by adding wine (or broth) and allow the liquid to bubble up and steam violently for a few seconds.
Add the butter and allow it to melt, about 1 minute; stir continuously until melted.
