Cook the chicken
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.
