- Sprinkle salt, pepper, rosemary and garlic over your tenderized chicken and give it a nice little massage to ensure your seasonings are thoroughly and evenly coating your chicken.
- Place a large skillet or fry pan over medium heat, add a your coconut (or olive oil/ bacon fat or ghee/cooking oil of choice) and cook chicken for 2-3 minutes each side until cooked through.
- Once chicken is cooked, squeeze over your lemon juice and turn once more to coat.
