Chicken Under A Brick

Chicken Under A Brick


  • split chicken breasts with ribs, 3-4 lbs or boneless chicken breasts, 2-3 lbs
  • dijon mustard- ½ cup
  • olive oil- ¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons to heat in skillet
  • poultry seasoning- 3 tablespoons (like Lawry's Perfect Blend) or:
  • one teaspoon each of salt, fresh ground pepper, rosemary, parsley and paprika


  1. Combine mustard and olive oil in a mixing bowl
  2. Heat olive oil in non-stick skillet or heated stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat
  3. Rub each chicken breast generously with mustard mixture and season with poultry seasoning
  4. Place chicken in hot skillet then cover with a large sheet of aluminum foil
  5. Place a weighted object on top of aluminum foil like a brick or a smaller cast iron pot
  6. Cooking the chicken with the weight on it over high heat makes the chicken extra juicy on the inside and crisp on the outside
  7. Cook until chicken is crispy brown on the outside and cooked through, approximately 10-15 minutes depending on thickness of chicken
