Searing is a simple and quick process that helps to seal in all of the juices of the chicken so it is tender and moist. Many chicken breast recipes call for searing chicken so if you don't know how here is how you do it. Simply heat a large pan with a generous coating of oil in it. Olive oil is not a good choice for this process because it tends to smoke, but vegetable oil or coconut oil will work well. Once the oil is smoking hot, simply add the pieces of chicken, skin side down. The chicken will let you know it’s done because, once it is, the chicken will lift easily from the pan. Be sure to sear both sides, if you prepare the chicken this way. Then, the chicken is ready to be added to a number of different easy chicken breast recipes or chicken casserole recipes and soak up all of the great flavour in the recipe.
