4. Heat 1 tbsp of ghee in a pan on medium heat. place the chicken in the pan, but do not overcrowd–keep a space between the chicken. This will make sure it goes crispy and does not start to bubble. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F. 

5. Serve with your choice of sides.
