To prepare the chicken:

  • Drizzle chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning, coating all sides of the chicken evenly.

To bake the chicken:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking dish with oil or nonstick spray and arrange chicken in a single layer. Cover with parchment paper, tucking the paper around the chicken so it is completely covered. 
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the chicken reaches 165°F when tested with an internal thermometer. Remove to a platter and tent with foil for 5 minutes.

To grill the chicken:

  • Preheat grill over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Oil grates. Grill over direct heat, close the cover, and grill 5 minutes on each side, turning once.
  • Transfer to indirect heat and continue to cook until an internal thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the largest chicken breast reaches 165 degrees, 5 to 10 minutes longer. 

To sauté the chicken:

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add chicken in a single layer and cook until browned on one side, about 5 minutes. 
  • Flip chicken, reduce heat to medium, partially cover, and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 165°F on a thermometer, about 10 to 15 minutes.
