4 Stovetop cooking: Add about one tablespoon of oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until the chicken is nicely browned, about 4-5 minutes depending on thickness. Flip and cook on the other side for 3-5 minted until cooked through. Let rest for 5 minutes and then chop into bite-sized pieces. Grilling: Grill the chicken for 4-5 minutes per side until cooked through. Let rest and chop into bite-sized pieces.
