  2. Season both sides of the chicken with salt, ground black pepper, and seasoning of choice.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter or oil to the skillet when hot. Carefully place the chicken breasts in the skillet and cook for about 4 minutes on each side. The chicken is ready to serve when it's no longer pink.
