With this dish, you'll get the flavor of barbecue without having to fire up the grill. Two of the best features of this easy chicken dish are that it dresses up a store-bought barbecue sauce and everything is cooked in the same skillet. Use presliced onion and bell pepper to make preparing this meal even faster.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Rub garlic over chicken, and sprinkle evenly with seasoning blend and salt.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Add barbecue sauce and water, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until chicken is done.

Step 3

Serve with: Sweet-and-Sour Slaw

I used chicken filets which enabled me to skip the work involved with the first half of step 1. Just season filets and proceed. Very easy, quick and delicious. The filets can be served as an entree or as a sandwich. A definite keeper!
