Season the flour with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Then add the flour mixture to a shallow dish or plate. Dredge the chicken breasts on both sides into the seasoned flour and dust off any extra flour.
Sear the chicken for 3-4 on each side until golden brown. You want the chicken to read 165°F with an instant-read thermometer. After searing, remove the chicken breast from the pan and set it aside on a plate.
