  2. Heat the griddle pan for a few minutes or until a droplet of water ‘dances’ on there when flicked on.
  3. Rub a little oil (any cooking oil) over the chicken or spritz it with cooking spray.
  4. At this point you can also add salt, pepper, or any dried herbs or ground spices you want.
  5. Cook the chicken for 4 or 5 minutes on each side or until done through.
  6. If you want a crisscross pattern instead of stripes, then rotate it after 2 minutes on each side.
  7. When the chicken is no longer pink in the center, it is done.
