Go-To Grilled Chicken

Go-To Grilled Chicken
I call this “go-to” because it’s what I usually default to when I want to make a quick, flavorful piece of chicken for salads, sandwiches, or just a last-minute meal.  The kids love the flavor, which is bold but not too spicy, and I find it works in just about any dish.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, pounded out to about 1/2 inch thick
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon paprika
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.  Combine the seasonings — oregano through pepper — and sprinkle evenly over both sides of the chicken pieces.  Brush the grill with olive oil and cook the chicken for about 6-7 minutes per side, until cooked through but not dried out.  Let the chicken rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.
