  1. Using a mallet, flatten the thickest part of the breasts so that they are more uniform and cook better. Season both sides of the breasts with salt and pepper and sprinkle with lemon juice.
  2. Heat a little oil in the Unica frying pan over medium heat, add the breasts and sear on both sides until golden brown, approximately 5-6 minutes per side.
