Cajun Blackened Chicken Recipe
Chicken Recipe: Cajun Blackened Chicken
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Mix together all of the spices. Rub one side of chicken breasts with spice mixture.
2. Heat oil in a cast iron pan over high heat.
3. Place chicken in hot pan, seasoned side down, and cook for 1 minute. Turn, and cook 1 minute on other side.
4. Place breasts on a lightly greased baking tray. Roast for 5 to 10 minutes, or until no longer pink and juices run clear.
This chicken is great as is with a side of your choice, but also try it in a bun as a chicken burger with lettuce and mayonnaise, or in a pitta with fresh salad.
