Tender Chicken Breast

  4. Pour oil in a cast iron 12-inch skillet and tilt to coat the surface. Place the chicken, skin side down, in the cold skillet and then place the skillet over medium heat

  5. Place a heavy skillet or dutch oven on top of the chicken to keep it flat. Cook until the skin begins to turn golden brown and the meat begins to turn opaque, 5-9 minutes

  6. Remove the weight and continue to cook over medium heat until the skin is well browned and very crisp, 6-8 minutes.

  7. Flip the chicken, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until the second side is lightly browned and the chicken registers 160°, 2-5 minutes
