Speedy Skillet Chicken

This recipe is fast, delicious and healthy.  I like to serve the chicken with a side of couscous or rice and a vegetable.  For the couscous or rice, I love all varieties of the Near East brand.  If I am really in a hurry, the couscous cooks in just 5 minutes!     

Speedy Skillet Chicken

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
½ T olive oil
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
½ t paprika
½ t poultry seasoning
½ t freshly ground pepper

Heat oil in skillet on medium-high heat.  Sprinkle half of the spices on each side of the chicken.  Cook chicken in heated skillet about 5 minutes* per side or until juices run clear.  Serves 4

* I like to use the thin sliced chicken breasts.  They cook faster and are in smaller portions which help stretch out the meal a little.  Depending on the thickness of the chicken, you may need to increase the cook time.
