Herbed Chicken is a versatile go-to dish.

HERB BUTTER CHICKEN BREAST

Chicken is extremely versatile and relatively easy to prepare. The main pitfall is not overcooking the chicken so that is dry, and not undercooking so that it is dangerous to the diner. Use an instant read meat thermometer to get to the perfect 160 - 165 degrees.
