Hey, I cook chicken nearly every day. It would make sense that it's the healthiest tastiest chicken I can eat. So I have a question for you: You only have 15 minutes to cook a chicken breast, what would you cook it in, how would you cook it? Herbs and spices are aloud.

If possible, give explanations for why you made your choices so that I can make a some what educated decision on what's best.

Forget cooking a chicken breast every single day. Instead buy 2 whole chickens on a day you have off (say Sunday), cover with your favourite spices and EVOO, stuff with some carrots, garlic and onion and slow roast them in the oven. When done, let them cool and cut up for a weeks worth of yummy lunch or dinner meat. Save the bones, backs, necks and feet (if you're so lucky), and cook in a stock pot with lots of carrots, onions, garlic, some thyme and a bay leaf. Strain after 4-8 hours. Now you have tender juicy chicken breast, legs, thighs and wings and some sweet home made chicken stock. Much better use of your time and you just freed up an extra 15mins each day of the week to do some more paleo activities, like getting outside and playing some sports!

Poach in stock (Vegetable (just the liquid from soaked dried shiitakes is excellent...), or any other, flavouring with herbs, eg thyme, parsley, basil, whatever... or spice... Go Cajun style, or anything else.. Poached with subtle flavours of fresh herbs if I can, for me. (Or strong if it's oregano...

Ditto in a tomato based preparation.

Ditto also in a coconut based sauce/cooking medium. Flavour again with any herbs or spices of choice.


If for whatever reasont he chicken dries out, and is plain, I suggest plain tomatotes for juice lubricating, or avocado, a yoghurt of some kind...

Cut breast into medallions. Season.

Bring skillet to medium heat. Melt butter or EVOO or EVCO in skillet.

Add chicken medallions. Flip after 3-5 minutes depending on size.
