6 chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into 4 pieces
1 cup flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. fresh black pepper
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup canola oil

1. Combine flour and seasonings and spread evenly on a plate. 
2. Dredge each piece of chicken in seasoned flour.
3. Heat oil and butter on medium heat. 
4. Transfer chicken to hot skillet. 
5. Sear each side of chicken on medium high about 5 minutes per side. 
6. Cover chicken and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes. Turn once. Chicken is done when juices run clear and no longer pink.

I love this chicken cold. If not eating immediately, wrap in tin foil and refrigerate. My honey thinks this chicken rocks.
