2. Halve the chicken breasts.
3. Mix together seasonings well. Pour onto a plate.
4. Take a chicken breast half and spray well with cooking spray. Coat the chicken breast in the seasoning. It should be completely covered.
5. Repeat step 4 for the remaining breasts.
6. Cook chicken breasts for 1 minute on each side in the pot. Transfer to a baking pan.
7. Cook chicken breasts for 30 minutes in the oven or until they are completely cooked.
8. Serve with your favorite side dish, or on a salad or sandwich.
