5) On your stove top, pan-sear chicken for approximately 3 minutes on one side, then flip over and immediately put the entire pan, with the chicken, into the oven.

6) Leave chicken in oven until it reaches 160 degrees. This will be 8 to 10 minutes at the most. The chicken will be done when it’s cooked all the way through (there will be no pink inside).

7) Once it’s cooked, place the chicken on top of a bed of mesclun greens (2 large handfuls). Enjoy!
