Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Rub olive oil over each chicken breast, then season both sides with salt and black pepper. Place the chicken skin-side down on a broiling pan.
  2. Broil in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then flip the chicken breast skin-side up. Continue broiling the chicken until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the oven and allow meat to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • If desired, add a quarter cup of water to the bottom of the broiling pan and stir to dissolve the browned-bits from the chicken juices. Use as a light sauce on the chicken.
