Step 2 Heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Once hot, add the chicken in a single layer. Let it cook undisturbed 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side until nicely browned and cooked through, another 2-4 minutes. Add the sweet chili sauce to the chicken and toss to coat. Set aside.
