Tips From Easy Recipes

Take care with this easy chicken breast recipe, to not overcook the meat. Breast meat has little fat and as a result, dries out quickly if overcooked.

To keep this chicken breast recipe healthy, use a non-stick fry pan so as to minimize the use of fat in your cooking.

Otherwise, start by heating no more than half a tablespoon of oil to cook the onions then proceed as instructed on the healthy breast recipe.
