Pan Fried Chicken in 20 minutes – Greek Style

pan fried chicken easy recipe weekday dinner

I have been on a lookout for recipes that are high in protein & fats while they still go easy on carbohydrates. The other criterion being, they should be easy to put together on a regular workday. Carbohydrates have really received a bad rap for a long time now, so I wanted to experiment by cutting down the regular carbohydrates I have for my dinner. Here’s one of the recipes I cooked last week for dinner.

Let the marination rest for 10-20 minutes

Recipe to Cook the Chicken

  1. In a cast iron skillet, pour 1 tablespoon of Olive oil and let it heat well.
  2. Start resting the pieces of marinated chicken into the skillet.
  3. Cook the chicken for roughly 3-4 minutes on a medium-high flame. Flip it over when you see that the bottom part of the chicken has turned golden brown in color.
  4. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Try passing a fork through the chicken. It should slide easily.
  5. Add a little bit of water & cover the skillet with a lid – This is only to get some jus ready.
  6. Cook the chicken for 2 minutes on a low flame.
  7. Place the chicken into a dish & pour the chicken jus. Garnish with cilantro.

Serve the chicken with a small portion of rice or a whole wheat chapati or some bread. Eat it while it’s hot.
