Italian Chicken

This Italian Chicken recipe is the best way to cook chicken
breast. You can use chicken thighs as well but either way, they turn out super
juicy with tons of Italian flavor. This recipe fits the Autoimmune Protocol
diet (AIP) as well as the Paleo and Whole 30 diets.

  • 2 pounds Skinless Boneless Chicken Thighs and/or Breasts (if your breasts are more than 1 inch thick cut in half the long way)
  • 2 tablespoon Italian seasonings  (homemade is best)
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Avocado Oil would be a good alternative)


  • Add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  • Using your hands rub the seasonings and oil all over the chicken.
  • Heat a large frying pan over high heat.
  • Once the pan is hot, start adding the chicken. Don’t over crowd the pan. Unless you have an oversized pan, you may need to cook the chicken in two batches.
  • Cook for about 4 minutes on each side.


If your breasts are more than 1 inch thick cut in half the long way.
You may need to cook this recipe in batches unless you’ve got an oversized pan. Most pans are 12 inch but if you’ve got an oversized one (about 18inches) then you can do this all in one batch.
