  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 6-7 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
