- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Serve whole or, if desired, cut into ½-inch strips.
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; rub the chicken all over with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
Prepare a medium-hot fire on one side of a grill. Set the chicken on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until starting to brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to indirect heat, close the grill, and cook without turning until lightly charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes longer. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Serve whole or, if desired, cut into ½-inch strips.
