I served it with the last butternut squash from our Farmer's Market and grilled asparagus. Fall dinners = mmm mmm good!! It's at least one thing that my husband enjoys about the fall.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan.
