    1

    Cook the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate. While chicken cooks, cook broccoli. If using salmon, season flesh-side same amount. Follow same instructions and place in hot pan flesh-side down. Cook until salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side, or 3-5 minutes per side for wild-caught salmon.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Broccoli

Cover, and cook until water is almost completely evaporated, 5 minutes. Uncover, and stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner and sprinkle with seasoned salt, cheese, and a pinch of pepper.
