  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.
  2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 2 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add 2 chicken and cook for until golden brown. When chicken is browned, flip and cook other side. Remove and transfer to plate. Remove pan from heat and add chicken to the plate.
