Fool Proof Grilled Chicken
2 Chicken Breast Fillets
1 tsp Salt
½ tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
½ tsp Red Chili Flakes
1 tsp Mixed Italian Herbs
¼ tsp Dried Rosemary
1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
Slightly flatten chicken breasts. This breaks the muscle tendons in the fillet, resulting in a tender final product.
Marinate chicken breasts with all the ingredients. Make sure you rub both sides of the fillet, making sure that the herbs are evenly covering the chicken.
Let marinate for at least 1 hour.
Heat a grill pan and drizzle with olive oil. (You may pan-fry the fillets if you like, just add a touch of olive oil to your frying pan)
Once the pan is nice and hot, place the breast fillets on the pan. Make sure that you do not flip the chicken before it develops a nice sear, this will cause the chicken to stick to the pan. Give it approximately 6 minutes for each side to cook through.
Let the breast fillets rest for 3 minutes before slicing.
Serve with sautéed vegetables, pasta, potatoes, or absolutely anything you like.
