Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • water

Instructions

  1. Lay chicken breasts in a large, deep skillet. Season with about 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper. Add water until the chicken is completely covered. Heat the skillet on medium-high until the water begins to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Using kitchen tongs, transfer the chicken breasts to a bowl or plate.
