Paprika Chicken

This is a really simple way to cook chicken breasts.  The only ingredients needed are a chicken breast per person, some paprika and freshly ground black pepper. 

Cover the surface of a chopping board with a piece of cling film/wrap that is large enough to fold back over the meat. 

Lay out the chicken breasts and sprinkle paprika over then add freshly ground black pepper.

Fold the cling back over the meat and use a rolling pin, meat tenderiser or pan to batter the chicken to an even thickness.

Line the grill pan with foil and place the chicken pieces on top.

Cook under a hot grill for 5 minutes (time required will depend on thickness of the meat)....
... then remove from the grill and turn the chicken over and return to under the heat.

Check the thickest parts of the chicken are cooked through by piercing with a knife - if the juice runs clear, the meat is cooked, if not return to the heat for a few more minutes and check again.
