Grilled Or Broiled Boneless Chicken



  1. Prepare a grill or turn on the broiler; medium-high and the rack 4 inches from the heat source.
  2. If the thickness of the breasts is noticeably uneven, put each between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound each breast to uniform thickness; blot them dry with paper towels.
  3. Put the chicken in a pan or on a plate, toss with the oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Do the same on a baking sheet.
  5. Put the chicken directly on the grill grates or in the pan under the broiler and cook until the side facing the heat browns, 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Turn and repeat on the other side.
  7. To check for doneness, cut into a piece; the center should be white or ever so slightly pink.
  8. Serve right away or at room temperature, with lemon.
