2. Sear the Chicken

Once the pan is preheated, add enough chicken to cover the bottom of the cookware without overcrowding. Sear for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown and partially cooked. Remove the chicken and reserve on a plate lined with paper towels. Continue searing until all the chicken is done, then set aside.
