Cheap and easy way to cook a chicken breast?

I didn’t eat meat for nearly 15 years. Never been much of a cook. But I’m trying to start actually cooking things that don’t go from a box to a microwave.

I’m sure actually cooking the thing isn’t complicated, but I have no idea what to put on it… how long to cook it, etc.
get the george foreman grill. Best grill ever for non-cooks.

Just grill for a few minutes and cut into it to see if its done in the middle.
I guess I’m looking more for how to flavor it.

Best way to cook fish?

I’ve gotten pretty handy at cooking steak, poultry, and pork, but have never tried cooking fish.

I have a pair of Mahi steaks I plan on cooking tomorrow – pointers? Recipe suggestions? Anything I should know about cooking fish that’s different from cooking dry land meats?
depends very much on the fish (I am no expert either, but based on my successes/failures).

first off, don’t keep it long or its going to get funky–i tend to cook it the day i buy it. likewise for leftovers–don’t plan on having any.
