Amount Measure Ingredient, Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 tbsp sweet butter
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, or vegetable oil
1 tbsp Penzey's Northwoods Seasoning

Wash chicken and then pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with Northwoods seasoning (if you don't have this then don't season at all with anything).

In a saute pan, cook 1 tbsp of sweet butter and 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil or vegetable oil over medium-high heat until golden brown.

Place skinless boneless chicken breast halves in pan, thick side down.

Cook for 2 minutes over medium-high heat.

Turn chicken breasts over, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 8-10 minutes longer, depending on thickness.

Remove chicken from pan and immediately season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Cover with aluminum foil or a plate and let rest for 3-5 minutes.
