Pan Seared Marinated Chicken Breast starts with a simple, yet flavorful marinade.  I use a liquid measuring cup to make the marinade.  That way, I can accurately measure the ingredients, stir it together, then pour over the chicken breasts!  This is the ‘plan ahead’ part of this recipe.

To begin, add 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar to the liquid measuring cup.

Next, add the 1/4 cup of canola oil.

Stir the liquids together briefly.  The oil may appear to separate from the other liquids (see above).  Don’t worry, though.  This i s okay.

Then, place chicken breasts in a large seal-able bag or container.

Pour marinade over chicken breasts, making sure all are coated well.

Next, seal and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 6-8 hours.    After you get home from a hectic day, there are only  a couple of steps left to put Pan Seared Marinated Chicken Breast together.  First, pound out each breast to equal thickness using a meat mallet.  I like to place a single breast in different seal-able plastic bag to complete this step.  I find that doing this reduces the mess that could be created in this process.

For the last step, heat additional oil in a large skillet until a few water droplets sizzles.  Place breasts in skillet and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side until they have a nice caramelized color.  Then sprinkle each breast with Canadian chicken seasoning, reduce heat and cover skillet with a lid.  Cook for an additional 5-6 minutes per side.  Chicken should reach an internal temperature of at least 165’F.  Check temperature of meat with meat thermometer.  Serve Pan Seared Marinated Chicken Breast with your favorite vegetable or salad.  Delicious!!
