For Pan-Roasted Chicken Breast
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Meanwhile, rinse and pat chicken dry with paper towel. Season both sides with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.
  2. Heat a cast-iron or oven-safe, non-stick skillet over med-high heat. When the skillet is hot (approx. 5 min later), drizzle in avocado oil and gently lay chicken in skillet. Cook 6-7 min, or until golden brown, flip chicken and transfer skillet to preheated oven. Roast chicken an additional 12-15 min or until internal temperature of the thickest part of the breast reads 160F on a digital thermometer.
  3. Remove chicken from oven and transfer to carving board. Let rest 5 min before carving. Serve with Salsa Verde.
