  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  2. Heat coconut oil (about 1/4-inch deep) in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
  3. Cook chicken in oil until light brown on all sides, about 10-15 minutes (depending on size of piece); reduce heat.
  4. Cover skillet tightly and simmer, turning once or twice until thickest pieces are done; about 35 minutes more.
  5. Note: if you can't cover the skillet, add 1-2 Tbsp of water.
  6. Remove cover during last 5 minutes to crisp chicken.
