Expert Tips

Add diced fresh tomatoes.

Adding a little water during cooking keeps the chicken extra moist and keeps the pan and chicken from burning; don't be afraid of using medium-high to high heat; it will add a nice sear to the chicken breasts to lock in the flavor and help to get dinner on the table in ten minutes flat.
