Pat chicken dry with paper towels; season all over with salt, pepper, and a pinch of chipotle powder (use up to ¼ tsp if you like spicy food). Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until browned and cooked through, 3-5 minutes per side. (TIP: Lower heat if chipotle powder is browning too quickly.) Turn off heat; transfer to a cutting board.
