Easy Eats: Mary's Kitchen Scallion Chicken

Chicken breast can be a healthy dinner or lunch option, but it can also get boring. So in this edition of Easy Eats, Mary Grube, of Mary's Kitchen and instructor of several cooking courses at Northampton Community College, shows us an easy way to jazz up chicken!

Mary's Kitchen Scallion Chicken 

4-6 4-ounce chicken breasts
Salt and pepper and/or seasoned salt to taste
1/4 cup ghee
1/2 cup scallions, chopped

Shopping: Chicken, ghee, salad or vegetables, potatoes, rice
Equipment: Oven-proof frying pan, cutting board, paper towels
Time: About 1 hour or less

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Heat an oven-proof frying pan over medium heat until very hot.

*As the pan is heating, place the chicken on the cutting board and pat dry with the paper towels. Then, season the chicken breasts on one side. Set aside. Wash up.

Melt the ghee in the hot pan. Carefully add the chicken breast, seasoned side down, laying each breast in the pan away from you to avoid getting splattered on and burned.

*Season the top side of the chicken breast now. Allow the chicken to brown 5-6 minutes before turning and browning the other side an additional 5-6 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat, scatter the scallions over the top and bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is cooked through and register 165-degrees on a culinary thermometer; about 20-25 minutes longer.

Serve with a salad, steamed vegetables and a baked potato or rice.
