Cook the chicken
In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain.
