  • Turn the heat down. And yes, make sure the oil is hot first. It will be ready when you test a tiny dash of flour in it, and the flour sizzles. A helpful tool is a timer or the one on the stove. For chicken breast...turn over after about 6 min. If that first side is at its crispy point, it will not stick. Total time for average size chicken breast is 12 min. Don't over cook. You don't want chewy fried chicken. :) Hope this was helpful.

  • oh, please don't use olive oil for frying. olive oil burns quickly and will create a lot of smoke.

  • Make sure if you are cooking it unbreaded, that you use a paper towel to get rid of any wetness on the chicken.Turn the heat onto medium under the pan (non-stick is best, but this method will work in any pan). After the pan has heated, add the oil. Then wait till the oil is hot, about 3 minutes, or until it shimmers, before adding the chicken.It will not stick.

  • a think layer or olive oil on the bottom of a glass oven safe dish will suffice
